Once upon a time, a toddler decided to climb/fall/lunge out of his cot repeatedly. Finally, at 17 months old, his parents decided it was time to bite the bullet and take the side off the cot. They still haven't done it yet, but recently they thought they should pull their finger out when they discovered the 17 month old boy leaning across the top of his cot to lie along his windowsill.
Dadda took him off and momma freaked out.
Once upon a time, maybe a day ago, a shiny new 5 week old child did this.
He stood up on his momma's lap. His head is not supported. His body is not leaning his momma. His arms are pushing his torso away from his momma. This is a regular occurrence.
Shortly after this pic, his dadda took him, and momma freaked out.
