View Full Version : She Pulled To A STAND!

I couldn't wait to tell you all. :happytears: I haven't even put it on the blog yet. Today the weather was sunny for the first time in forever so I brought out the Pack-N-Play to put Ainsley in as I did yard work. Yes, fun, I know.

I tried to give her toys but she would just throw them out. So then she was in there with nothing to do but she seemed happy enough so I left her and she managed to pull herself up BY HERSELF to STANDING! I think she wanted to watch Evie and Adrian.

It is perfect because it's pretty soft with the padding and the mesh sides so if she fell over she'd be okay. I am SO thrilled. Right now she gets a little nervous lowering herself back to a sit but she can do it. I think this is going to be fabulous. It's the perfect height so my hope is that she'll eventually start cruising in there. She got up and down about 15-20 times so that has to be good for her muscles. Who knows, maybe she'll be walking with a walker by her third birthday (We're in the process of getting a gait trainer). Truthfully I wasn't sure her hands were strong enough to do it, so I'm just so excited! :woohoo: What is my amazing little girl going to do next?!

Bravo Ainsley! :hooray: I've seen it/read about it so many times where there's a point in time when things just click for kids and they take off developmentally. It sounds like Ainsley is clicking away!

Yeah, of course I accused the kids of standing her up. "Did you stand her up? Are YOU SURE?" I just about died and fell over myself running for the camera!

YOU GUYS ARE SO GREAT! I loved reading all your comments. I can't even explain how great it is to have your support and feel that you care about Ainsley and are rooting her on! We've been through so much and you've been here through the hard times, I'm so glad to be able to share the triumphs too! You've helped save my sanity these past 2 1/2 years. ;) Thank you! :grouphug:

Way to go.... Great Job Ainsley!! :applause:
Wow, I cant believe you were in enough of a right mind to get the camera. I know the first time Joseph stood I was too busy crying to even think to look for mine.
