Let’s Roll

“Does she get tummy time today?”

“Can we put her on her tummy now?”

“Well, she’s crying because she’s on her tummy . . . . Yeah, I kind of turned her over. I just want to her to be able to roll over.”


With Manchild, I sat and waited for the water to boil. I didn’t want to miss his first roll – or for it to come a moment later than his potential allowed. I would put him on his tummy, roll him over so he’d get the feel of it, encourage him until he could do it himself. Like any other Type A parent.

I’d love to do the same with Little Miss, but I don’t have to: I have two little munchkins to do it for me.

These boys are excited to watch their sister grow up. And I did not see that coming – even though every few days we go over the averages: babies usually roll over at 3 months, start eating by 6 months, could be crawling by 8 months.

Well, Little Miss celebrated her 3 month-day yesterday. This fact was not lost on her brothers. She is now 3 months and 1 day old. And the boys have been waiting.

It’s time. Let’s roll.

  1. oh, she’s gorgeous! and wyatt is the exact same, he’s dying for june to roll. she’s done it a few times nut nothing consistent. as if she does it a few times in a row and then forgets for awhile. he keeps saying how she’s going to grow up and “be a talking girl.”


  2. She’s just not rolling yet because everyone wants it so bad. She’s asserting her independence at a young age. 🙂
