Ben is able to stand up holding onto things like the couch or a person. However, he is not usually a fan of it. He fusses and makes his displeasure clear. I can’t say I really blame him. I mean, sitting is awesome, and he can do that with no problem. He has people to carry him from place to place. Why does he need to stand up on his own like that? But lately he has been fussing less when we set him up to stand. He does still get concerned about getting down from that position, so we are working on it with him.
He is so cute when he stands! It sounds funny, but it is easy to forget how little he still is. Most of the time I am holding him, so he is at eye level with me. When I see him standing on his own I remember my boy is still little, and that makes me happy. He seems to be growing way too fast! Seeing him standing also gives me a glimpse of what is to come when he starts walking. While I am still very much enjoying the peace of having a non-walker in my house, I can’t wait til Ben is running all about. And I do think he will be running as soon as he can. He loves to move!
Here is the video of Ben standing, with Dagger and Daddy cameos.
