She'll master it yet, hopefully before she starts walking, which she already enjoys practicing a little too much for my taste. She loves to try and pull herself up on things. Most of the furniture in our house is still a little too high for her, which is why she enjoyed the sunbeam chairs so much on Tuesday. She loves when we let her stand up "by herself," though; it kept her occupied for a whole twenty minutes last night.
Who's down there?
Rachel thought it was hilarious when I crawled under the table and looked up at her. We tapped each other's fingers from behind the glass, making it get all fingerprinty, and made faces at each other. It was a fun game.
In addition to working her gross motor skills, we keep practicing fine motor skills. Rachel likes to try to turn the light switches off and on--she uses her pointer finger only, though, so can't get enough force to get it to actually move without a little outside help. She also likes to try to grab at pictures in books, Cheerios, and anything small enough to choke on.
