A budding sitter

By the time I came to my senses and filmed this, he’d been holding himself up for about 10 minutes. I know I know I’m always full of excuses, but I’m slow like that, and only come to my senses when it’s almost too late 🙂

This, my friends, is the result of 6, yes 6, medek sessions in New York. I tried this a few weeks ago – nothing, he just collapsed forward or to the sides. Today, he did about 8 minutes without falling, and about 5 sessions fluctuating between 2 and 8 minutes. Joy joy joy!

He’s sitting on a balance board, which allows me to make very very slight corrections if he’s loosing balance. At first I had to correct him a lot, towards the middle almost not at all, at the end a bit more because he got tired.

If you’re wondering why I keep putting my face or hand in front of him – it’s to get him to sit up straight so he can watch his TV over my face or hand….sneaky sneaky 🙂

Tiny tiny tiny steps…moving along…joy joy joy!
