3V0269.01 Standing in her crib (Miriam did it) (10/18/78)
Peggy has shown much more inclination to stand than to sit. It has been hard even to get her to sit down in a lap. Today, Miriam called out from the girls’ room most excitedly, “Mom, Dad, come see. Peggy’s standing by herself.” And Peggy was standing in her crib, holding on to the top bar. How did she get there ? Miriam pulled her up from a sitting position, but Peggy’s hands on the bar and let her go. She has done so on subsequent days.
Relevance: This incident shows Miriam’s intrusiveness, driving Peggy forward to “the next major achievement.”
