Sitting, Part 6

Cayman sat independently!!

I know you've heard me say that before but I hope that does not diminish the excitement my words wish to carry into today's post!

I have been talking about Cayman's sitting ability, and lack of it since January, nine months ago!

For nine months she would make progress and then lose it...

make progress and then lose it...

etc...

But yesterday, Cayman sat like she has never sat before.

I do not know if she will duplicate this again, or if like all the other times she will regress in it. But I do know that when she sat up and stayed like that for 10 minutes our hearts leaped for joy. We fell into a pile of shrills, laughter, tears, and kisses. What an exciting evening it was at our house!

This little angel is amazing. She could teach us all something, with persevereance and a little hard work anything can be accomplished.

What a blessing she is to us all.
