Harper “Sit’n” Sue

According to BabyCenter.com most babies learn to sit unassisted between 4 and 7 months. Harper Sue is right on schedule.

She has started enjoying the sitting position more and more over the past week and it’s fun to watch her concentrate on whatever object she might be enamored with without being distracted by toppling over.

Her typical sitting routine starts with a decent downward dog and slow descent over a bent knee into the seated position. She doesn’t often topple over but rather shifts her wait forward and ends up on all fours ready to crawl. Needless to say, the installation of our new baby gate could not have been better timed.
