Coraline is a sitter! She started sitting up just before last week. We had been practicing as much as possible, ever since she started trying to lift her chest up from a lying down position as if trying to sit.
She sits with a little pillow behind her, preferably. We get about 30 seconds without toppling, sometimes longer if she’s using her hands properly. She is starting to be able to hold toys while she sits as she gets better about balance.
She was just a little concerned about the grass and so wasn’t too interested in smiling for me. But no outright crying, unlike Jameson, so that’s a plus!
Falling either direction doesn’t appear to bother her though. She’s gone face first a few times and is only unhappy when it’s in the grass.
Don’t worry, the grass was soft and cushy!
