An Eliana first: She took a seat in her rocking chair.

Eliana was playing in her bedroom when I peaked in to find her contently sitting in her rocking chair. I went downstairs not knowing whether to get the camera or a teapot with cups and saucers. When I returned (with the camera) she was still happily seated, even with her brother vying for her attention.

After some observation, I learned how she got there. Eliana climbs on anything she can, including her rocking chair. It turns out that after climbing up on the rocking chair, it is natural for her to transition from kneeling or standing to sitting. And since it’s a comfortable chair, sitting is not a bad way to stay for a bit.
