Petra has learned to get up to a standing position! She can’t walk yet, but she can stand pretty well.

Mountaineer pride

It’s very funny, because we all clap for her when she does it, so now she has started clapping every time she stands. I think she thought that we were trying to tell her, “You’re missing something–you need to clap.”

Silas, especially, has been very sweet about cheering her on. He says, “Mama, Petra is turning up into a girl and then we won’t have a baby anymore and that will be sad. But then she can be my friend.”

Brother cheers

She is so pleased that he is pleased with her.

Why yes, I do let my children sit on that dirty floor…
