Rollin', Rollin', Rollin'

A post from Sawyer
Hi Everyone! Today I finally mastered my newest trick—rolling over! I’ve been doing it from time to time for at least a month now, but mostly by accident when I would straighten my arms out just right. But today I really figured out what I’m doing, and I’ve been rolling over all day long. I was so excited about it that I started early, at 4:00 a.m! I rolled over once and Daddy came and put me back on my tummy, but then I did it again so Mommy could see, too! Then every time I woke up from a nap, I did it again. I like to be on my back so I can look at the animals on the mobile above my bed. While my Mom has been typing this, I’ve rolled over twice!

I’m a little camera shy, so I haven’t actually let Mom catch me in the act of rolling over—just before and after. If she keeps the camera close by, though, she can probably get a shot of me mid-roll before too long.

Here I am when I woke up from my nap this afternoon. Mom found me talking happily on my back.

So then she put me back on my tummy . . .

And I rolled over before she could get her camera ready!

I was pretty proud of myself, as you can see!

Mommy says I’m getting to be a big boy. Keep watching to see what tricks I’ll do next!
