Leago is at home with mom and a visiting friend of granny’s. Leago suckles on and off for a while, touching mom’s face. After some time, mom stands Leago up and watches him balance, telling him “You’re standing with a tree trunk” (suggesting he is standing firmly on his feet). There is celebration when he manages to balance for a few moments before falling into mom’s arms. Mom sings “Standing like a tree trunk” several times. The visiting aunt offers encouragement and admiration too. Mom takes out a bottle of soap bubbles and blows them into the air while Leago watches, wide- eyed. When the bottle is finished mom stands Leago up again and the balance activity is repeated. Mom also plays a kissing game with Lee.

Mom notices the younger of Leago’s uncles arriving home. Veejo (the uncle) greets everyone and Leago smiles at him and crawls after him to the kitchen. Mom comments that Leago loves Veejo so much.
