all at once

Eleanor had a very big day, developmentally. She picked up and drank from a sippy cup without assistance. She also went from crawling to sitting, as Oliver would say, "all by self." For that last one it helps if there is a wall or other means of support nearby. She still can't quite do it "in the open field" but it's only a matter of time, and I predict she has it down within a week.

She has also started saying "mumumumum" more consistently. This may turn out to be her first word, thus making up for her brother who was at least fifteen months old before "mum" made his list of words. I was after things like "dog" (his first word) and "duck".

I understand...I came after "car" and "cheetoe".
