We're So Proud

Yesterday, Whitney went from laying on her stomach and rolling around to sitting upright all by herself. She did this two times and both times we missed seeing it happen - we just knew that she had been on her belly and that all of the sudden she was in a sitting position. Tonight we were playing in her room just before bed and she started squirming around and looking as though she might sit up all by herself. She did it and so I called to Mike and Anne to come see if she would do it again. She did it 3 or 4 times and then I went to get the camera - this is what we captured (it is a little long and she only sits up one time, at the beginning, just to let you know ahead of time if you decide to watch the video.)

Yay Whitney! So adorable; she'll be doing this all the time now - wait till you try putting her down for a nap, or bed, and realizes she doesn't have to stay in a lying position because she can sit up on her own now! LOL :)

That is great! Thayer is kind of rolling over - she did it last week at daycare. We have seen little bits of it but nothing consistent. It will come soon enough! Go Whitney!

Great job Whitney! I love how Anne had to get right in there and show you how she could do it. Brooke is the same way, we have a video of her showing Lindsey and Brooke rolling over. Congrats Whitney, keep up the good work!
