For the first time, Hazel just sat up on her own. She’s been able to stay sitting up if we put her that way for some time, but this is a first for her. Woohoo!

A quick note: if a child can stay sitting up, they’re ready to face forward in a child seat in a car. The child seat instructions all say “from 8kg”, but that’s just a guideline, according to the Queensland Ambulance’s child seat fitter. She much prefers sitting forwards, so far, and it’s great we didn’t have to wait a couple of months (she’s about 6.5kg) first.

Additional: in her bath this evening, Hazel stood up. She grabbed the edge for stability, then used her legs to stand. A good day. 🙂
