Look at me! Look at me!

So we are trying to teach Sierra how to sit up. I realize this isn't something you can actually teach a baby, but she's just not figuring it out on her own. We have done everything we can for her!! We got her a Bumbo seat...she likes to fold over and twist through the arm hole. We sit with her and she likes to topple over. Her grandmother got her a booster seat and she likes it, until she gets bored (like 5 minutes or less) and leans to one side and whimpers. Oh baby...well, Joe has been staying with her and to my surprise look at what he has done! She sits! Ok, don't be totally deceived. If he gets her on a soft surface at just the right depth she is supported and can usually sit up for a bit on her own. Isn't she the cutest! But eventually she will topple over and just lay there on her face, side, or back. She won't even cry if she faceplants into the bed and we don't get her up right away. She just smells or tastes the blanket...what a wierdo! =)

I sat by her today while she sat in the middle of the Boppy and that seemed to work for awhile, surprisingly. Twenty whole minutes! She's still more comfortable on her back but hopefully some day soon she'll be sitting up on her own and the new perspective on life she's been getting will be a permanent part of her day! Wish us luck!

Sierra is quite the cutie! I just buckled and bought a video camera today because I've been kicking myself that we didn't have one for our wedding or honeymoon or other things we've done in the last year+ and decided I wasn't going to make that mistake with Lil'Robby... So- yeah- can't wait for my new toy to get here. WOO!
