How to stand, for babies.
Start off by cuddling with your puppy for moral support, and to get you in a thankful, I-can-do-anything mood.
Rise up to standing position, like this. You'll be really happy and shocked you did so well, and it will feel so cool you'll want to squeal. Don't hold back! Squeal! I always do.
Next, look to your parents, friends, loved ones - whoever is in the room with you, and seek an applause. Clap your own hands to show them what you're looking for and to get the party started.
Keep squealing and clapping.
Once the cheering has died down, bring your arms to a steady position for balance, and slowly squat yourself back down to a seated position.
Go back to your puppy, sigh, and think to yourself...standing is awesome.
