She Rolled Over!

Our two-month-old rolled over yesterday! She is ahead of the game in MY book, granted, I'm a little biased.

Maybe there's hope that she won't pick up my procrastinating habits. I mean, really, I think I'm the only guy in the neighborhood that races down the driveway and HANDS our full garbage cans to the trash guys as they go by.

Now, I know, if you don't have kids, you might be thinking, "Heck, I roll over all the time."

For a two-month-old, however, this seems to take quite a lot of effort.

Her thought process seemed to go something like this...

"Laying on my stomach, laying on my stomach, laying on my stomach....OK, I've been doing this for two months...I'm in a rut...I need a little variety...

"Maybe if I PUSH really hard......I can try to.....maybe I can JUST....

"On second thought, my stomach isn't so bad. No, wait...this is BORING...I can DO this...

"I'll just PUSH again...here we go...here we go...

"Oh GREAT! Now, everyone is looking at me. What, you've never seen someone roll over before?? Sheesh.

"OK, here we go, here we go, here we go...I THINK I can, I THINK I can, I THINK I...

"WHOA!! I'm on my back! Everyone is clapping! WOW, this is GREAT! Laying on my back, laying on my back, laying on my back...

"OK, how do I get back onto my stomach?"

I can totally relate....I think it is great you are excited about the milestones of your children. Keep being a good dad, and having a very active interest in your children....our world would be a better place if everyone else were so involved!

Look for a review soon on my blog:

Two months and rolling over! I'm impressed! My little one was at least 3 months before she accomplished that task. I'd say you are not just biased, you have a little overachiever on your hands...or I have an underachiever. Nope, I'm pretty sure you have a serious overachiever.
Love your blog. Will be back often.

Amy's right--you have an overachiever on your hands! Mine took WAY longer to do it. But then again, she does have an enormous head so that probably made it a bit more of a challenge.
