It was a big weekend at the Coy household.
Katie woke up Friday morning with her first tooth. I was, of course, bursting with pride, and called my husband right away, followed by my mom and a quick post to my facebook page. It was as if I had willed the tooth to grow myself, I was so proud.
The next day, I looked over and saw Katie sitting and playing with her toys. Seconds later, I realized that I hadn’t left her in a sitting position. I had to investigate. I walked over and laid her on her back. Sure enough, she sat up and started playing again. Yay! She’s sitting up all by herself! Again, phone call, phone call, facebook.
Later that same day, my husband and I were enjoying a rare lazy Saturday afternoon. I was on the couch and he was laying on the floor, when Katie crawled over to him. She put both hands on his stomach and raised herself to a standing position, like she’d been doing it forever. He looked at me, I looked at him, and we silently agreed that we had, in fact, bred a genius. She just started crawling!
She spent the rest of Saturday and all of Sunday climbing every vertical surface in the house, enjoying seeing the world from this slightly higher viewpoint.
Definitely a weekend for the record books.
