She Rolled Over!

I just have to share this with you right away! A few minutes ago, Aerissa rolled over for the first time! I could barely believe it.

I put her down for tummy time on her play gym mat and got down on the floor with her like I usually do. She had her head up really good, looking around. Then I noticed how she kept looking at the mat to her left.

All of a sudden…

Whoop! Over she went, onto her back.

Of course, I, being a first time mama, am super proud of her. I cheered, clapped, kissed her and went to tell hubby.

Then I put her back on her belly.

It didn’t take long before she did it again.. all the way from front to back!

Brian came into the living room just after she rolled over the 2nd time. I put her back onto her belly after another round of praises, but we didn’t get to see a third one. She tried though! She grunted and strained, her body rocked to her side, but fell back onto her belly. Then she’d had about enough and started crying in frustration.

It’s hard work after all….

Ahhh, the little moments!

I got more excited than I thought I would, but it was awesome! You have to get excited for/with them, I think. It spreads the love around :)

Isn't it so exciting when they reach these first milestones? I get so excited about the silliest of things. Yesterday Little Bit figured out how to put the different shaped blocks in the little box with the shapes cut out. I seriously did the happy dance, clapped my hands, and squeeled. He looked at me like I was nuts. I even added it as a praise at small group Bible study last night. I know I'm a nerd but I love that little boy more than words can say. Hugs to you and your little one for this super exciting milestone!

WooHoo Rissa! It's so rewarding to watch them do something for the first time. Since I'm back to work full-time, I don't often get to see Alli do new things for the first time. But last weekend, she surprised me by pulling herself into the seated position and letting me snap a quick pic on my phone. Then I scared her by bursting into tears because I was so proud of her!
