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..

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)

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!!

Hey no worries..

We aren't comparing, just that my hubby was REALLY amazed with Aidan's developement.. I always so excited to know his development too, not for comparison, just so refreshing to know he is doing something everytime, sharing your joy joy with my ah lao ;-)

As for Caleb, we just let him take his time to meet his own milestones knowing that he's a premie. I think he can support his own neck only when he's about 3 months, but we weren't so anxious. just the "roll over" incident, we weren't aware that he must roll, until our doc tell us...

Like now, we are enjoying his rocking left and right while sitting, so funny that he can't stable himself, yet he wants to move left and right without balancing himself.... then he will end face down, and we naughty parents, laugh first before helping him... I was trying to share this video in LJ, but looking for a domain to upload to...
