Back in the day, the long-ago days when Gwen was a toddler, she couldn't sit. "Sitting unassisted for a period of time" was a six-month milestone, and she didn't meet it. Looking back, I don't feel like I was super worried about this, but maybe I was - I was pretty crazy/hormonal/stressed out about motherhood during that period. I *do* remember that I had a hard time explaining it to people, who kept misinterpreting me and believing that Gwen couldn't sit still. No, the problem was that she couldn't SIT AT ALL.
|Sitting on hip, not bum.
(Spoiler: she finally started sitting at nine months old.)
Here's something even weirder. Gwen is STILL not so keen on sitting. Here are some photos taken over the past several weeks. In every photo, Gwen is watching a movie on TV, so has every reason to be comfortable, stationary, and, you know, facing the screen. Generally in cases like these, people turn to "SITTING" as a solution. Not Gwen.
In Gwen's near future: sitting in a kindergarten classroom and doing 'desk work'. I can't wait to see how that goes.
