Gross motor skills: standing 

Over the last week Frida has suddenly “got” standing unaided. Previously if she was standing up and we let go of her, she would stand for 10-30 seconds, then panic when she realised and promptly sit down. 

  
Now however she will intentionally let go of whatever she is holding, and will do everything she can to balance if she starts to wobble. It’s such a joy to watch her!

  

She is also climbing the stairs (eek) and generally seems really aware of and interested by her body. When prompted she knows her nose, mouth, head, hands, and feet. It will be interesting to see when she decides to walk!
