The Stand

It's awe-inspiring how fast kids learn. This week, Jonas figured out how to stand up. Sunday, we watched in disbelief as he finagled his way to standing from kneeling by the bathtub. He's been working at this for months. It took him a few minutes to pull it off, but he did it. Then, Monday he did it on six times. Daycare reported on Tuesday that he was tried to stand every opportunity that he got. By Thursday, he's a pro--up in seconds.

Hmm, what do we have here?
The look of raw determination. Hmm, wonder where he gets that from.
Look at those meaty thighs!!
Here, I am, Mom. Let's do it again.

Get ready Liz!
First standing, then walking, and then you're chasing him all over the place. Jaxon is literally running now.
