We've been working with Ben to help him strengthen his back and tummy muscles so he can sit up, since he seems to hate missing out on anything. I think he'll be less frustrated once he's able to sit up and play with toys, or just see what's happening around him.
Today I put him on the couch next to me while I changed the cover on the Boppy. I laid him down against some couch pillows so that he was reclining somewhat. But was he satisfied with that? Nosirree, Mr. Ben pulled himself forward so he was sitting up. First time for that! I think he was pretty darn proud of himself, too.
He is still, however, very bitter about having tummy time.
