AMAZING: Eight Week Old Baby Learns To Stand
Wow, this is truly amazing!
This baby learned to stand at just eight weeks old!
The parents of this baby girl were impressed by her strength ever since they hot home from the hospital and realized she could support her own head. That's very rare and impressive, but they never imagined she'd learn how to stand less than two months later.
31-year-old dad Tezra Finn-Jonstron said "When she was about a month old, she was having a tantrum and I tried to sit her on my knee to calm her.
"Instead of sitting down, she just stood on my knee and wouldn't bend her legs.
"She did it a few more times later on in the weeks - eventually I thought, 'well if she can do it while she's annoyed, maybe she can do it when she's happy'.
"I tried to hold her and supported her, and she managed to take her own weight.
"Everyone seems to think that it's unusual that she can hold herself up, even just sitting, let alone standing."
Well, it is. Babies usually sit at about 6 months and learn to stand from 9 months on.
Tezra asked his mother whether he or his siblings had done the same at Lula's age, but she said no. The baby is one of a kind.
"Pretty much from the day we left the hospital she was able to support her head a little bit more than we thought she should be able to.
"She was holding it up for a few seconds and that shouldn't be for a few weeks, but pretty much straight away she was able to do that.
"Then we watched this Babies documentary on Netflix and on there they said babies are inherently programmed to crawl from birth.
"So I put her down on the mat and she was trying to crawl a bit.
"Then I put my arm behind her and she was able to push herself up the mat - propelling herself from my hand with her legs.
"She can also do it lying on her front as well. We noticed that and she was able to do that first time, so that was impressive.
"It's like she's showing off - she looks at you and smiles, it's like she's trying to be a big girl!"
Here's a video of the 2 month-old baby standing!
Lula's Dad thinks another explanation could be that she has a good muscle-to-weight ratio because she was small at birth. Norn on January 31, Lula weighed just 2.5 kilograms (5lbs 9oz). Tezra also says that he's always managed to build muscle quickly, si she might have good genes.
While she can't walk yet, her first steps will probably be closer than the parents expect. After all, she seems eager to grow up and conquer the world. And with that cute face, she definitely will!
