I don't really know what I am musing on these days. It's more like an irregular stream of consciousness thing...it seems to be working.

Biped Bean

Discovered a fun game to play with Bean last night---she was in her crib, and I had the railing down and was pulling her to a sitting position and back down again (she HATES being on her stomach, so I'm trying to build upper-body strength somehow). Well, she managed to get her feet against the crib bumper and pushed herself up into a standing position. Colored me surprised, to say the least. I mean, she always likes being put into a standing position, especially if she is facing outwards, but this was the first time she had really put a lot of effort into it herself.

We played this a couple of times, and boy, was she jazzed. Lots of squeals and laughs and loud vowels...maybe she'll just start pulling herself up on furniture and totally bypass crawling and scooting, who knows. It's just weird that she has that much control over her legs and yet refuses to be on her stomach or flip herself front to back/back to front. I would like to figure out a way to bulk up her arm muscles, though, as she isn't using them quite as much as her legs. Any ideas from cyberspace?

At any rate, it always makes the day more sunshiny when she gets excited about things.
