Since having botox in March, Ashlea's legs are much more supple. She has recently started to do this lovely side sitting ...
And then in the last couple of weeks she has started to do THIS!!!
And even very briefly with no hands...
It has happened so quietly and effortlessly that I barely noticed that she was starting to try to sit independently. Then the other day I was in the lounge room (not paying particular attention to her) and I heard a little voice say "Good sitting Mummy". I looked over and lo and behold she was sitting up. On her bottom.
What a milestone. I can't tell you how excited I am that she is still meeting milestones. They might be few and far between, but boy do we celebrate them when they are reached.
Now if I ask her to show me 'good sitting' she will try and get up onto her bottom. She can't always do it, but she always tries. Once she gets there she can only hold the sitting position for half a minute or so, but the fact that she can get herself into the sitting position is a HUGE achievement. Hopefully she will be able to maintain it as the botox wears off.
