Emma's Headstands

Today Emma was bored, so I decided to teach her some "gymnastics." She already knows how to do a forward roll, so I thought about teaching her how to do a headstand. I thought she would just get bored and get frustrated with it. But I was wrong.

I set up some pillows on her bed. I showed her how to stay off her neck so she wouldn't break it. After she "got into position," I lifted up her feet and she would hold the handstand for about fifteen seconds before rolling to the side.

She got pretty good over the afternoon. Now, by 8 PM, she can get up into the position herself! Here are some pictures to show you how it's done.
