Yoga Baby

Lately, any chance she gets, Sophie will do a back-bend. Sitting in her sling, scrambling on her little jungle-gym, anywhere she’s close to my hands because she knows I will help spot her: she will bend herself backwards and then start laughing at the head-rush upside-down-world. She’s got a better urdhva dhanurasana wheel-pose than me, probably because she has very little fear. She likes me to help her upright again. She likes to do this at least three times in a row, like any good yogi. The other day we were out walking, and Sophie was laughingly backbending from her seat in the sling, and a stranger said, “What are you doing to that baby?”
