He stands

Yesterday Matt stood on his own, without holding onto anyone, not supported AT ALL - for just over 30 seconds.

We CELEBRATE this milestone!!!

Matt looked so impressed with himself, smiling and then a cute giggle as he eventually fell over.

Matt has been wanting to stand for a while and up until yesterday has not managed it for more than a couple of seconds. Yesterday everything came together for him to achieve his goal. Well done Matt!!!

We will post pictures soon. We did try take some yesterday but they are not that good - I think mom and dad were shaking with joy so nothing much came out in focus.
