Scarlette's sitting up!

Just wanted to share really quickly that Scarlette is now able to hold herself up unassisted for a few seconds at a time. We are working on this very often with the physical therapist. Today we did 20 minutes of sitting assisted but very minimally. We place our hands with just light pressure at the base of her hips and she does the rest. Considering three months ago we had to hold her up at the base of her shoulders, it is amazing to see the transformation! Scarlette really enjoys sitting as well because she is seeing everything from a new angle and is very curious about the world around her. Her therapist thinks she may be sitting on her own in the next couple of weeks!
Shown is a photo I was able to snap really quickly before she toppled. I also included a photo of her sitting in her bumbo, which she can now maintain very easily unassisted!
