Sitting Around, Looking Cute

November 13, 2009

thumbSitting is like riding a bicycle, it seems. Once you get it, you've got it for life. Nora's been doing quite a bit of sitting since mastering the ability a week ago. She does still fall down eventually, but she's gone for at least fifteen minutes a couple times. Yesterday she was looking so adorable in her long-sleeved flowery blouse and purple corduroy dress that I had to record a video of her sitting up. The trick, I learned after three takes, was for me to be down on the floor behind the camera making goofy faces. When I hit stop on the camera, my neck was killing me. I can see where she gets her hatred of the prone position.

She remained sitting for several takes, but the last one was best.
