1. "Ohhh, good sitting, Alec," say the mothers around us. "Look at him, pulling up" and "He's even doing it with distraction." He still has to hang on to my finger for balance, but he is suavely confident enough to suck on the other hand all the while.
2. Alec lost interest before we got to the leg-lifts part of the yoga class, so I was feeding him while the other babies were giggling at horsey rides on their mothers' legs. Later in the day, in the privacy of our own home, we give the exercises a try. I guess this is what our teacher means when she talks about 'your own practice'.
