As with all of Ethan’s milestones he likes to keep us waiting and then hits us with quite a few in a short space of time. After mastering the art of sitting up we hoped it wouldn’t be long before he progressed onto something else.
I was back to work at this point and I would secretly hope that he wouldn’t do anything new why I wasn’t around. Thankfully I was very lucky that all of his ‘first’s’ were on my days off.
One day whilst we were playing Ethan decided it was time to stand, he decided he wanted his beaker. I must say that at this point he couldn’t drink from his beaker by himself, but that’s a whole other story!
Within seconds we went from not being able to stand, to standing.
I’m not sure if there should be stages to this milestone, but I always find Ethan goes from not being able to do something, to all of a sudden doing it. It’s like he observes for ages and he isn’t happy doing it until he knows he can do it perfectly.
Ethan was 13 months old when he stood up for the first time.

Yeah Ethan! Definitely worth observing and perfecting, saves a lot of unnecessary falling over!
Bless him. Little perfectionist. And how lovely of him to save his firsts for your days off! I was devastated when Ben decided to take his first steps when I was at work on a KIT day!
Aww it’s always when they want something isn’t it.
Such a lovely memory.
It’s amazing what an incentive will do 🙂
My oldest was a little like that – waited until he was sure he could do something before trying it!
Lovely memory x
Monkey was a bit like that too – took him forever to walk – but once he took the step he was off.
Such gorgeous photos! My son was like that. Took him ages and once he worked it out he was off!
OMG those cheeks are so squeezable! Guess you have a bit of a perfectionist on your hands.
A lovely happy memory, so pleased you caught all of the firsts, same here so far!
Great that you captured that precious moment. J Boy managed to walk for first time for grandparents whilst I was on a (very) rare day out in London! Am sureit’s a wise move too to wait til you’re good and ready.
What a great moment to catch so beautifully Jane! I wish I had done the same with mine. Now I can’t even remember those moments and they are lost forever…
And as usual, lovely photos 🙂 x
