And the little one said ...


Claire has almost mastered rolling over.

Am I excited for her? Absolutely. Am I terrified for us? Completely. Rolling over is a gateway to crawling, which leads to walking, which leads to running, which leads to moving away and going to college.

Now you understand why we are on high alert.

She has been working on rolling over for a few days now. I have just been watching and waiting. Waiting for that moment when she flips over and realizes that she has just landed on her tummy. Did I mention she HATES laying on her tummy? The doctor said she will eventually grow out of that. Ya know, once she sees that tummy time leads to crawling. But I just picture her being 26 and still laying on her back, begging Grace to bring her some food.

But maybe I'm getting ahead of myself.

Oh you are just a hop skip and a jump away from having to baby proof EVERYTHING!

I remember when my niece learned to crawl. It was really cute. Until she crawled right over to the the movie case and proceeded to remove them all from their shelves. And then pulled all the plants of the top. And then decided that was so much fun she'd just bring down all the pictures too :)

You have a lot of running around in your future my friend!!
