Well, she did it – and just like in the movies – I missed it.
My baby girl rolled over!
It was Sunday the 27th of January in the year 2008. The time was 7:47 pm. (Does that sound formal enough for such a momentous event?) We were doing tummy time and I was reading her favorite book to her, “Where is Baby’s Belly Button?” when I decided to pick another book to read. I stood up and turned around to pick a book off of the top shelf. I turned around and there she was calmly lying on her back. For a half second I was confused – knowing something was wrong with this picture – and then I realized what it was, I had left her on her stomach and now she was on her back.
She hasn’t done it again. Oh but she’s tried poor thing. She scrunches her legs up under her, sticks her bottom in the air, kind of twists her torso and grunts and groans… but nothing. I have nine minutes of this on videotape.
Now that she knows she can do it I don’t think she is going to be happy again with tummy time until she figures out how to do it again. Hopefully we have alot more videotape.
