Zane has been doing a bunch of free-standing the past few days. He doesn’t do it on his own (probably doesn’t see any reason to do so) but once we pop him upright he does his best to stand there before either gently sitting down or leaning forward to grab someone. As for the grabbing someone, if they are far enough away (but not too far mind you) he’ll take a few steps to reach them. So far the record number of steps is four.
Each time we try it he stands up longer and seems more confident. That’s not to say he’s given up on the idea of crawling yet.
p.s. yes, dad picked out the stunning clothing ensemble.
