I guess after cruising, standing unsupported is the next big milestone. We’ve been trying to persuade Ella to do this for a couple of months now, as she’s been quite happy hauling herself up on furniture or walking around pushing her buggy or holding our hands for a while. We do what I guess most parents do of trying to let go when haolding their child in a standing position and hoping the child maintains their balance. Mostly trying that Ella has just bumped down on her bottom and crawled off to do something else. She hasn’t shown much interest in standing, because I guess she doesn’t see the point in the standing around in the middle of a room when there are things to explore and do. Over the past week, though, we have seen her stand unsupported while playing at her activity table or the sofa because she has been standing supported and then held an object in each hand and therefore not held onto anything or lent on anything. Also, she has stood up from a kneeling position a couple of times since her birthday. So, overall, she’s just about standing.
