Several significant incidents signalled my little boy's coming of 10 months!
He can now stand unaided.
He has actually been trying to do this for a week or two now. It is really comical (and scary) to watch coz from a sitting position, he would try to get up without support. But he can't really, so his bum goes 1-2 inches off the floor and then down again in a 5-6 attempt.
Else he will stand up and let go! This which he now has successfully managed to do.
No photos unfortunately coz mummy's hands are still surrounding him in case he decdes to plop down on his bum!
He knows that after the edge of the bed is the floor and 'pain, pain' !
The other day as he was rolling all around and climbing over me and all the pillows, he reached the end of the bed. I am not a cautious mum. I usually let them explore and see what they will do. Of course (to redeeem myself), I either hold on to their clothings/leg/arm in case something does really happen!
But surprisingly. I found that on 2 seperate days, Christopher realised that it was the edge of the bed and tried to get back onto the safe vastness behind him. He would usually kick his legs to stabilise himself into a sitting postition and then turn around back into bed.
On the pediatrician note.....Christopher went for his rountine growth checkup on Saturday. His pead brought out a whole file of games and stuff and papers to record his different milestones.
A little underweight - need to put on another 500 g to be an average weight!
Other developments are on par!
