I am working really hard learning how to sit unassisted. Last week we started having me lean forward and play with toys on this bench...and it helped so much! Mom started crying when I did it the first time! She gets so excited about my progress!
Hard at work at my bench! Eileen is right by my side helping if I start to fall...she's so great!
Now Eileen is trying a different technique...sitting me on my bench and having me reach for the sticky toys on the mirror. But c'mon Eileen, how can I focus on the toys when I can look at my own adorable reflection?!? :)
This position also helps strengthen my upper body. It's not one of my favorites, but I'll give it a go for Eileen and Mommy.
Strengthening my legs is another priority. I used to absolutely refuse to put any weight on my legs, but slowly but surely I am making progress in this area too! But only on mats...I just don't like my little feet to touch carpet, it freaks me out!
