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, 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!

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.

This is way cool :) So if OCA and Aidan crawl towards each other they can now brake i.e. sit up hehehhehhehheee.

The thing is..I think they won't even meet halfway and will jus situp not long after u place them on crawlin position hehe..
Hey woman..u should also get a camcorder..still pictures doesnt capture these moments..and OCA would probably start walkin/runnin on his own really really soon!!

I used an editing software downloaded from the net that can specify the exact measurements, tho the pic mught be skewed a bit. The name's called ReaSoft or something like that...but in the end the pic I submitted was not acceptable cos the background must be pure white (they're very particular) ...end up taking instant photo when I went to collect the passport.
