I was beginning to feel like Oliver would never learn to sit.  The books (which I’ve been told to ignore, but read anyway) say that babies learn to sit around six months and before they learn to crawl.  So, 6.5 months in and he started crawling without sitting!  Every time we would ‘practice’ sitting he would arch his back and flop over.  But then, on Halloween, he just sat up and acted like it was the most natural thing in the world!  I started to get all excited and take pictures…and then he pulled himself onto his knees and tried to escape the pillow prison we had made for him.  *sigh*  

He looks like such a ginger!
