Dear Bean


Dear Bean,

You can now sit up by yourself, and it makes me so proud! Now, technically I know this is just another milestone, and you’ve been slowly starting to sit by yourself for about a week now, but today I sat you down (with pillows around you, we learned from the bump on the hardwood last week) and I went and did laundry while you amused yourself, while sitting! It’s awesome! It opens up a whole new world of self-amusement for yourself. It means I can sit you down somewhere, and I don’t have to worry about having your bumbo there, or your command center, or somewhere soft to lay you down. I can just sit you down on your little butt and you’ll be just fine. Awesome!

Next up, crawling!

  1. Ah yes, crawling. As my son now dashes back and forth banging into absolutely everything in his path, I look back at the good old days when he could not get himself into too much trouble just sitting there. Then again, it is a lot of fun chasing him around and hearing his infectious laughter as he scurries off 😉

  2. We just got a bumbo for Cole last night – He’s not really ready for it yet, but even at just over two months, he sits in it shockingly well. I’m definitely a fan of the thing.

  3. @NewYorkDad: Everyone tells us that when he becomes mobile we’ll long for the days when he wasn’t. And the same goes for talking, but I’m looking forward to both. 🙂

    @Drew: Bumbo’s are amazing (if hugely overpriced). We used it at about 2 months as well, though not much. The back was the perfect height for him to rest the base of his head against. It was pretty cute. 🙂
