video thumbnailSitting up is hard to do. It takes a level of balance and coordination that doesn’t normally arrive until the fifth month. Today is Nora’s four month birthday and she, well, isn’t a very good sitter. But she’s so doggone cute when she tries, that I had to take some video. I present to you, The Sitting Olympics, Nora vs. Gravity…

Place your bets with the bookies at the window. Round #3 is my favorite.

This HD video is also available from YouTube, Yahoo, Metacafe, Break, DailyMotion,, Veoh and Viddler.

  • This is just adorable. If she would just sit quietly and demurely she might actually win a round, assuming there is a time limit. Let’s face it gravity defeats all of us every day.

  • Love it.

  • I wonder if I can beat Jag and Sgazzetti to the “gravity always wins” Radiohead quote…

    • I’m not familiar with that quote, but I don’t know many Radiohead lyrics.

      However, a wise man once wrote,

      In the end, we all succumb to gravity and wither away. What\’s important is that we rejoice in our beauty while we are in bloom.

      The John Mayer song referenced (video removed) on that post is apt, as well.
