Rollin' rollin' rollin'

We have rolling!! As recently as Tuesday, Kate showed no interest in rolling over. She could get onto her side, but didn't seem to care about getting there or moving on from there. Starting on Wednesday, she would roll half way and then get mad that she couldn't get to her tummy. She would fuss and fuss until I put her onto her tummy. It happened over and over for the past few days. Today, I left her on her play mat on her back, and when the fussing started, I expected to find her on her side again, shoulders part way over but hips still firmly halfway.

But no! She was over, but had her arm pinned underneath her. Her hips were all the way over. I flipped her back to her back to see if she would repeat it. Less than five minutes later the fussing started again, and over she was, arm still pinned and causing frustration.

It's a memorable day! And it means I can't leave her on the change table while I run to get clean diapers from the dryer anymore.

This isn't a rolling picture, but it's one from this weekend and too cute not to post.

Melody made that, with scraps from the bigger project the girls made for kate. I will take photos of all of it and post it- i've been meaning to do that for awhile.

Looks like she took to her own excersaucer more than K's. That's a good thing. It was great seeing you and you cutie Kate before Christmas.
