Rolling Over

Gem rolled over to her belly last Monday, by Friday she was rolling to her belly and back to her back.  She was never a fan of tummy time, so the denouement of all that struggle, and effort – and ultimately success – was the indignity of finding herself face down. 

We’ve moved beyond that now. Aside from her new skill of returning to her back, she’s made peace with the view from her belly.  A new baby gym with toys hanging over head as well as attached to the mat below have helped facilitate that change of heart.

Now that she can roll over. She’s decided she’d rather sleep on her side.




I love how these little legs are so plump, her feet don’t touch the bed.
