Friday, March 09, 2007It's been a busy few weeks here at the Laycock household. While Elnora has been perfecting her drawing, Emmitt is learning to crawl and sit.
He's about 5.5 months this week and while he just rolled over for the first time about two weeks ago, he's already buggered right along into the "I'm not crawling, but I can still end up 8 feet away in a matter of minutes" stage. He doesn't quite have the coordination to get his belly off the ground yet...(though at 20+ pounds, maybe he just doesn't have the STRENGTH to get his belly off the ground) but he can creep backwards pretty well.
He also managed to sit on his own for the first time today. Yay! Sometimes Greg and I will sit him up at our feet with our legs on either side of him so that he can play while sitting up. Today, I moved away to see how long he could stay like that. Turns out, he made it a good 8 or 9 seconds.
He fell over when I went to get the camera. (Much like Paris Hilton...)
When I came back, he not only stayed upright long enough for me to snap some photos, but he also held out long enough for me to get a little video. Since I'm now a big "Hey, let's embed a YouTube video" fan, here's Emmitt's first foray into the world of sitting up. (You'll note that Elnora makes a brief cameo appearance. And no, that's not a pacifier, that's one of the toothy smiles from her Mr Potato head, she thinks it's hysterical to put them in her own mouth.)
