I can't beleave that Stella is old enough to be sitting up on her own. If you have never held Stella you wouldn't know that she has been this little sitif as a board little girl. Her back is so stiff and her arms are always out she she looks like a t. Being as stiff as she is I don't know why it shocked me that she has picked up sitting so fast. We got back from San Fran and with in that week she was sitting all by herself and has really done it well. What a big girl. Man, how time flys!
