Topher is BUSY. He wiggles and squirms and scoots and shuffles, but I can tell he wants more. He wants to stand. I saw him reaching up for the couch today, so I stood him up and let him hold on to the edge of the couch and he was very excited about it. His legs are strong, and he'll stiffen them up to hold his weight, but he's nowhere near doing it himself. After he got bored of that, I decided to try to sit him up again. Usually he immediately throws his weight backwards but today he actually sat for a little while. Naturally, I caught it on tape. (I apologize in advance for all the comments such as, "Good boy, Topher!" and, "You are such a big boy!" But I was excited and I'm a mom and I'm allowed to talk to Topher that way now. Nevertheless, I have enough awareness to realize that it gets annoying, so feel free to turn down the sound.)
Just a note: I tried to get Topher to sit up again right after I ended taping this and he acted like he had never done it before. He threw his weight back and wouldn't even try to do it. This is why I take so many videos...you just never know what a baby is going to do.
