Curtie...our Vertical Advisor

Yahoo! LC's standing!

She started this as a means of self defense. When Curtie was here he was horrified to see her HOLDING ON TO TOYS to stand up. So, he'd promptly shove her off. And, if she didn't want to end up on her bumpkin, she needed to find a way to shift her weight to stay vertical until Auntie Whit could swoop in and save her.



So far her record is about a 40 second stand. But, she always lowers herself very slowly to the ground when she decides the stand is through. Clearly, she feels her tush is one of her best features and she carefully preserves it.

I'd give a "Way to GO, Pudgie!" but I think she's already pretty sure she's brilliant. So, instead, we'll say, "Thanks for the Developmental Milestone, Curtie!"

Now, come back and help us in the talking department before our speech therapist pulls her hair out.

The 'mmmmmmmmm" sound would be GREATLY appreciated...

  3. Great job, LC!!! I especially love that you lower yourself slowly! That shows excellent muscle control. Your good friend Lucy didn't learn to lower herself for a looooooong time after she learned to stand, and I was always afraid she was going to compress her spine! Ha ha!!!

  5. Woo and a big old HOOOOO!!!! Excellent work, LC, and nice instructing technique, Curtie!

    I love the just-so-you-can-have-time-to-see-my-skill, controlled lowering. A diva's descent, I'm sure. Nicely done.
