Brenden has finally learned to pull up at his walker AND get turned around all by himself. He still asks for help sometimes but I think that's just a cop-out....if I pretend I don't see him trying to do it and just watch out of the corner of my eye, he does it just fine. But if he sees that I'm watching him he says, "Mommy I need you. Help me." He has also learned how to turn his walker....since we don't have swivel wheels on it yet, this consists of picking the front up and turning it in the direction he wants to go. It takes a lot of balance and coordination on his part, so this is quite a big accomplishment.
He has learned to climb up into his recliner all by himself AND get turned around to actually sit. Before, he would climb up and then kinda be stuck backwards, but I helped him figure out how to turn around. So now that he can do it, Miss Madelynn taught herself to climb into her chair as well as Brenden's recliner. She strongly prefers Brenden's chair, even though she has an adorable pink chair to call her own. She tries to climb up on the couch but her little legs aren't quite long enough to get up there yet.
