sitting up unaided :)

Hee..the not-that-wee one sat up on his own today!!

This morning, I was encouraging him to crawl on the ABC mat...the li' bugger moved and squirmed as usual and then, he suddenly propped himself up and sat on his butt! I was like..fwah! So clever heh..I quickly put him on his back..to see if he would do it again and got the camcorder ready..and sure enough, he flipped himself over, started moving forward and voila, sat up on his own again :)

The problem is..he's now sorta too lazy to crawl for long..he'll crawl for a while, sit up, flops his arms about like a mother hen and gazes at me with his watery eyes, expecting me to carry/play with him..*sigh*

Here's a video of him sitting up unaided (both same images)
a) Only 139kb but kinda fuzzy..
b) 1.53mb but much clearer..

Wow, another milestone! Boy, he's growing up fast huh? The way you're documenting all this is way cool! I wonder what Aidan will think when he looks back on all the pics and vids years from now. :)

till he has a kid of his own *grin*

being a mommy is so interesting! u get all these "firsts" experiences...
Aug. 3rd, 2003 09:31 pm (UTC)
Yeah..coz he's my first child it's so exciting when he reaches all his milestone..and now with the camcorder, I can record it down so that hubby can get to see it even if he's not home:)

Wow, he looks very steady sitting up ll by himself, way to go Aidan boy!

Angie, once they learn to sit up, they'll wanna keep practising it, that's y he'll crawl for a while then sit up, play, then continue to crawl, Nana's like that too... nowadays she likes to "shift her butt" from 1 spot to another, very funny to watch, LOL!
Aug. 3rd, 2003 09:26 pm (UTC)
yeah..i guess it's a novel experience for them so they will do it repeatedly..was hopin he would find crawlin abt an interestin experience tho but he seems to not take to it..prefers to 'stand up' instead.

Darn..I do wanna see Nana in person..i should arrange for a baby swimmin session at my place..u interested? Will try to make it a weekend.

Latest Window Media Player?
Hi there,

Still having problem viewing, have you tried Lastest Window Media Player? It works for me.

What OS are you using?

Showed my DH previous video of cute little Aidan, and told him that Aidan is only 2 weeks older than Caleb, He stared hard at Aidan in the video and then looked at Caleb (asleep). He did it a few times, and asked me if I'm sure. He was amazed by his progress.

If I were to show him this, his eyes probably pops out, and jaw drop... Hee Hee.....

3 Cheers for Aidan!!! Hip Hip Horray!!! (3 times)

Re: Videos
Should use Caleb to compare with Aidan coz he is a premature child..
Actually, all our babies reach their milestone at different times..like OCA and Nana, they both managed to sit up unaided earlier..I try not to compare with the other babies at all..just let him develop at his own pace and do my best to encourage him along :) But it's always a pleasure whenever you see them doing it for the first time. I bet u gonna be over the moon when u see caleb doing the same!!

wow. great work Aidan. Ryan can only do it when he was 8.5 mths.
BTW how did you get the video file to be so small ?
Aug. 4th, 2003 06:29 am (UTC)
how big are your videos?
The software that came with my digicam allows me to make the video movies either as an mpeg (bigger file) or streaming video (much smaller file)..what software are u usin? If u want, i pass u the software (studio8) this Thurs and u download it into ur puter. It's really easy to use..

hee..hopefully, this mummy will keep on the discs intact and not lose them :)
Aug. 4th, 2003 08:25 am (UTC)
Sho cute and so smart using his hands to prop himself up!
Aug. 4th, 2003 11:27 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah...the pommy was taken on Sunday mornin by the first couple who saw her..sorry!
Aug. 5th, 2003 12:31 am (UTC)
Well done, Baby Aidan! It's always a joy to see our baby learning something new! :) With technology, we can capture those precious moments...

A small suggestion... you may wish to shoot in future from his perspective instead of yours. It's more interesting and closer to the action. Looking forward to see more accomplishments!
