New Milestone!

Over the course of the last few days, Lauren has reached another milestone.

These are pictures of Lauren playing in our living room this evening. I have been in Chelsea teaching all day and Lauren has been at nursery. It's been fabulous to come home to witness this event.

She can now pull herself up to stand from a sitting position completely unaided. Before, she was holding onto furniture and people to get into a standing position but now she just does it without any help or holding on. She managed to do this once or twice at the weekend but we were unable to capture the event on camera.

We were finally able to photograph her standing on her own tonight. She has been trying to stand up more over the last few days and today at nursery. Her carers at nursery were telling us that she laughs every time she does it. She knows she's doing something new and she's really excited by her achievements. I am sure that it won't be long before she walks now.

I am astounded by her rapid development in the last few weeks and her eagerness to learn new things. It really is a joy to behold and I am thrilled to bits by it all.

I am so proud of my little girl!

Hee-hee!! Fantastic!!

In 18 years time when she's in Fresher's Week at Uni, having discovered cheap alcohol we will look back on her fondly re-discovering how to stand up unaided..... :)

Seriously though, it's great to see these photos...

Aaahhh! That's so wonderful! You go Lauren!

Thanks for the comments!

We were really chuffed; but yes Gareth, we will be reminding her in 18 years' time when she goes to Freshers' Week...!

And of course, you have to parade the baby photos in front of any future potential boyfriends ;)

Baby Photos!?!? She'll have her own DVD-ROM with this website on it....imagine the embarrassment of that being handed over!

Ha-ha!! :))
