Sitting up!

It's such a big milestone in a baby's development and one that heralds the start of many jumps and leaps in the coming weeks.

For about a week now Henry (4.5 months) would try to sit up straight if he was held in my lap, a sure sign that he is trying to strengthen those back muscles ready for sitting.

Personally I am not a big fan of propping up babies.  We don't have any of those contraptions that help a baby to sit (apart from a bean bag that we lie him down on to play with his musical mobile) but instead love to find fun ways to help Henry build up his muscles (like this).

At the moment he can sit comfortably for around 10 minutes but after that he throws himself back and takes it easy.

A whole new visual world has been opened up to him now and best of all I can start bringing out the treasure baskets soon!
