Roll With the Changes

Dear Peanut,

Today marked a banner day in your development. Today you rolled over, all by yourself, for the first time. Of course, NO ONE (except Kitten) was there to witness this momentous event.

Daddy put you on your back under your play gym in the Living Room this morning. He stepped into the other room for a moment, and when he came back you were on your belly. Which is really sort of funny, since you don't like being on your belly all that much. Daddy said Kitten didn't seem all that impressed, but Daddy and I are so proud of you!

Although, we should keep in mind that this is really the first step towards mobility - something we are already dreading.

This past weekend you had a visit from your Grandpa and Grandma Jeffries. What a little angel you were all weekend! They timed their visit just right - it seems that almost overnight you have turned into quite a Chatty Cathy. Your voice now fills the house (almost constantly) with raspberries, coos, and squeals. Every time I call home from work I can hear you in the background, talking loudly. I think you have found that you like the sound of your own voice.

I was hoping to hold off the mobility thing just a bit yet, but it looks like you are anxious to get it going. I have the sneaking suspicion that you are going to be one of those children who is on the go all the time - unwilling to stay put in a stroller, or car seat, or lap. Time will tell. . .

I love you so much, sweetheart.
