While crawling still hasn't been of any interest to Michael, sitting up finally is! Before Thanksgiving the best we could do independently was this:
...which would last all of 5 seconds before he plopped to his side. By the time we got back he had gotten much much better at balancing himself.
Unfortunately...mom needs to get better at moving things out of the way so that when he does topple he doesn't hit anything...I wasn't quite quick enough nor observant enough beforehand to move a box that was near him. Michael tried to grab a toy that was just out of reach and he fell to the side and bumped his head...you can see the line it made on the left side of his forehead...we had a very unhappy boy on our hands for all of 30 seconds and then he was ready to sit up and play some more.
Michael had his six month appointment on Monday. Here are the new measurements:
Weight: 14 pounds 8 ounces (still in the 10th percentile)
Height: 26.5 inches (dropped to the 75th percentile from 90th percentile)
Head Circumference (up to the 50th percentile from 25th percentile)
