Although I have mentioned in an earlier entry about how Emma is beginning to sit, she has really improved in the past week. You can prop her up on the floor, the sofa, or even a 7th story balcony ledge and she won't topple over. She's not an expert at sitting quite yet, but she has come a long way in about a week. At the very least, I think she can sit up for a few minutes before gravity takes over and Emma's head is once again introduced to Mr. Floor.
Andrew still hasn't been able to sit up for a long amount of time because he's so squirmy. Even when you carry him, he's looking to left, right, up, down. Stay still already! All I can say is we're going to have to switch him over to decaf formula pretty soon.
I think Emma's ability to sit up opens up a whole new world of possibilities that will make life easier. Instead of holding Emma to watch television, we can be even lazier and let her sit on the couch for hours on end. We also no longer have to worry about running out of diapers because we can just let Emma sit on the crapper until something squeezes out. And if we're ever in someone else's car and there isn't enough room for her, Emma can just sit on the roof until we make it to Sacramento.
Don't get me started on the possibilities when they can start to walk! Let's just say there will be a lot of piggyback rides given to mom and dad to and from work (Have you seen the price of gas lately?).
Tee-hee. Can you believe it? I can sit on my butt! Tee-hee.
