Pulling to Stand?

My little one loves to stand, sit, army crawl, and climb on me... but hasn't learned to pull himself up to stand. He can pull himself up if I hold my fingers out (he grabs on and gets up really fast) but can't do it by himself yet.

Does anyone have tips as to how they learn to pull themselves up from objects around the house? Is there any good "starter" household items that I could help him pull up with? He tries to do this on our couch, but the leather is too slippery.

Thank you!

Thanks! He just pulled to standing using our legs as we sat on the floor last night. I'll try the low basket trick to get him to pull up to something higher.

My son started pulling himself to standing position about a week and a half ago. He was born 10/8/08. He first did it with a low basket that has toys in it. Then he did with our much higher leather ottoman, then the even higher couch, now anything.....it's really funny to watch. Watch out now the scrapes and bruises start!!!!! It's inevitable!
