My barely six-month-old baby is now standing!

In a matter of less than two hours, my baby will be turning six months. And yes, there’s another surprise from her – she’s now standing on her own, of course, she knows how to support her body with her hands!

Her daddy and I were really caught off-guard the first time we saw her stand. She was holding unto the big pillow for support when we first saw her stand. After an hour, we were caught by surprised when she stretched her legs (in a very straight manner!), and she stood beside her daddy in our bed.

Now she doesn’t only want to practice her new-found antic. She now wants to walk?!


I wasn’t quite prepared for that although it was predicted by our other friends that she might be standing or walking at six months. I was and am still shocked up to this minute of writing this post.

Usually, it’s between 9 to 10 months that babies attempt to pull up to stand. As Dr. Tanya Remer Altmann, a pediatrician says, “You never know when your baby might decide to try pulling herself up to stand. So as soon as she turns 6 months, play it safe and lower the crib mattress.” This reminds me to ask her daddy to lower the crib tonight.

You’re such a darling, baby. We love you so much. Happy 6th month birthday tomorrow!
