This month (at 11 months old) he has begun sitting for longer periods of time (we are talking like 20 minutes at a time) without the constant need for someone to be right by his side. He actually breaks his fall quite gracefully! lol But now I find myself still not able to say he is an independent sitter. Now my excuse is that he can't actually get "himself" into a sitting position on his own (even though he gets closer every day). I'm not really sure what this all means to be honest. Denial, perhaps! I am so excited for Landon reaching this milestone. A very bittersweet moment. It shows just how hard he has been working. Maybe part of me is a little sad that he is actually on his way to becoming a toddler. I have absolutely loved the fact that Ladon has been little for a longer period of time. We all know how quickly they grow! I love to watch the real pure joy he has playing with toys and his brothers now! It's a whole new world sitting up (things really do look different more than 6 inches off the ground). lol:)
Independent..............dependent.............does it really matter?! Landon doesn't seem to think so! So, why should I! He is just enjoying life! Hard work and endurance has really paid off! Well worth waiting for!
I DID IT!!
