Our baby can't stand, but she has invented a dance. She sits and bops her head from side to side like an enthusiastic Sunshine Buddy. Just like the nodding, she flails her neck around so fast that it looks like she's going to hurt herself. Obviously, this cracks her up, because she has a giant smile on her face whenever she does it.
Head-bobbing is currently her favorite method of expressing happiness. She dances in response to music, or funny sounds, or spotting me across the room when I come home from work.
We wondered briefly if we should be concerned about this frantic head-thrashing, but we're not so worried that we don't actively encourage her to do it.
