BREAKING NEWS: Rolling Over!

So...this morning, whilst in my crib, I was having a blast pulling my feet up and playing with them. This is something I have been doing recently since I discovered my feet. Over time, I figured out, that by shifting my weight, I could get over to my side, which I enjoy immensely. I can hang out, suck my thumb, and be all comfy cozy.

From here, I figured out that I can actually flip over on to my tummy by myself, without having to wait for my parents to decide when I should be on my tummy. What I do, is flip onto my side and hang out...then, when I'm ready, I swing back towards my original position, and use the momentum to push myself over onto my tummy...This morning, Mom leaned over, saw me on my stomach and yelled "Oh my God!" Dad didn't know what was happening, and he sprung up in bed, shocked (With hair to match) and Mom told him that I had finally rolled over on to my tummy. I enjoyed hanging out this way for awhile, until I realized that I have to always hold my head up....or find a way to lay down comfortably.

It was my first time. I'm still working out the kinks.

I did it again just before Dad came home from work, and he heard me getting agitated in the bedroom. He was kind enough to retrieve me, and play with me for a bit. How delightful he is.

Mom and Dad have removed my blanket for safety, since I haven't quite figured out how to get back on to my back, but it's just a matter of time. I'm getting there!
