So today Joy took her afternoon nap as usual, and I caught up on email and actually caught Geneva online and got to chat with her. I hear Joy wake up and think nothing of it I usually let her play by herself a little before going to get her. As long as she is happy I like to finish what I am doing, and at the time I was chatting with a friend I never get to chat with.
So I finally break off the conversation (don't worry Geneva she was only in there a couple of minutes awake) and go to check on her cause I hadn't really heard her in a little bit. I open the door scan the bed and I didn't see her! I then start scanning the floor where has she gone (know this is happening in the seconds as I am walking across her small room to her crib). I look back in the crib after not seeing her on the floor thinking I just missed her in a corner, and sure enough I had missed her STANDING in the corner!! I guess in her playtime I had given her she decided to sit up then that wasn't enough fun so she decided to stand! I praised her (although not as loud or happily as I wanted to since that scared her last time) she then lifted her hands off the rail she had been holding so well and fell hitting her head on the other side of the crib. She was fine, and I was till proud of my big little girl.
Later today Rob and I were watching her play on the floor in front of the tv and she reached up and got a good hold on the base of the entertainment unit. She managed to pull herself about 3/4 of the way up then lost her grip on the unit. down she went for Dad to catch her. We then figured she wouldn't try again tonight, but we kept watching her. Eventually she did decide on the other side of the unit to try again and this time succeeded. She managed to stay up for a small photo shoot from Mom and then she toppled again. Dad then got the video camera and managed to catch her getting up one more time before she tired out and had to go to bed!
What a big girl she is now she can pull up!
