Friday I was in one seriously foul mood.

The end of the work week was near, and I was exhausted, irritable, and just downright grouchy. Everything in life: work, laundry, dishes, husband, babies seemed so overwhelming. I had to go to work early that day, so I was rushing around the house trying to get everything done, worrying about things that really didn't need worrying about, and oh ya, taking care of babies.

So, I put Claire in her bedroom for some floor time and went to grab something from the other room. On my way back by her room, I noticed she was laying on her side. Which she does quite frequently. She's been about to roll over since, well, it's been a long time.

But for some reason, on this particular day, I stopped at the doorway, watched her lay there and decided to grab the camera.

Can you freaking believe that?? How amazing is it to watch your child roll over for the first time? I was crying and laughing all at the same time.

That's all it took. Watching one of my little girls take one roll toward growing up. And my seriously foul mood was gone.

Editor's note: In the interest of full disclosure, this is not the video of the first time she rolled over. That's a five-minute long video, the first four and half of which are her being THIS close to doing it.
