Darwin sits

From the first moment she opened her eyes after she was born, Darwin has been very engaged in the world around her. Everyone, from the hospital pediatricians to people on the street commented about how alert she was, strikingly so. She is less than thrilled with inward-facing carriers (although she still tolerates them – for now) and much to my chagrin tends to prefer strollers where she can observe the world more clearly and without having to whip her head from side to side. Perhaps then, it should not come as a surprise that Darwin is dramatically (and I use the word with roots in “drama” intentionally) happier when sitting or standing. And for anyone who has every experienced a bobbly-wobbly baby who weighs more than 18 lbs, you can understand our incredible, indescribable joy at reaching this milestone:
