Standing for Something!

Tyler has decided this last week that he has something to stand for. Apparently, the floor is boring and he has discovered that he has legs. This has been building up for a while.

Last week he started to sit on his own without help. It happened because of a girl! We were at a birthday party last week and little Kardyn was there. She is about a month older than Tyler and sitting really well. Usually Tyler will sit for a little bit and then roll down to his tummy and start army crawling. However, when he saw Kardyn sitting for so long he kept looking at her and refused to lie down. He sat for quite a few minutes until Kardyn started to crawl and then he did too. It made me laugh. 6 months and already trying to impress the ladies?! She is cute!
Then in the last few days he has started to pull himself up on furniture. He still can only be up for a few seconds before he falls down.
He likes to kneel and look around for quite a while....
...but down he comes. So sad, but he gets over it really fast.
Then he finally build up the nerve to try standing. Life is good...
...until he falls again!
Keep trying Tyler! You'll get it!
