One of my absolute favorite milestones.....sitting up! Sitting up brings a whole new world to babies - playing! When they drop something, unless it rolls across the room, they can pick it up. It is fabulous! Mya is now sitting on her own, for the most part. I still put the Boppy around her in case she falls over, and I take these sweet, sweet moments of her playing happily to try and get things done (seeing as how she hasn't allowed me to get ANYTHING done for the last 7 1/2 months).
Another favorite milestone of mine! I waited too long to give Lo a sippy cup, and it took me about a month and every different kind of cup on the market to get her to drink out of one. Mya, of course, knowing there is some sort of food in it, has no problem drinking out of it. It's one of my favorite things, because it makes me see the light at the end of the bottle/formula tunnel. Before I know it, she'll be crawling (hopefully), walking (we'll see), feeding herself, and drinking milk. There are things about the newborn stage that I like, but I LOVE the toddler stage, and it's coming, woot woot!
