roll over accomplished

guess who rolled over ALL BY HERSELF today. she's a sneaky little critter, this kid. apparently, instead of napping, these past few days she has been training for world domination. i've been leaving her in her crib for prescribed nap times and she has, more or less, dozed off and been quiet. now i know why. away from prying eyes, she is engaging in babyrobics. (already, we've found her in the mornings, rotated 90 degrees from where we laid her.)

well, this morning she kicked it up a notch. at 9 i put her down (shhh, on her stomach) good and tuckered out. half an hour later i peaked in on her and she was awake, still on her stomach, but with her butt in the air. she was wriggling around, bunching her legs under her like an inchworm. another 10 minutes later, i peaked peeked again and she was on her SIDE! like a turtle on her back, though, she appeared flummoxed as to what her next move could possibly be. hopeless. or so it seemed. i stepped away for a few minutes more and when i checked again she was ON HER BACK. i guess she has been reading this blog surreptitiously and has been shamed into performing. good for her.

one thing is clear, however: we the people are all doomed.

Welcome to the internet-cure. Anytime I am frustrated beyond belief, I post about it and walah! Strange this cure... it especially works on children - it's near fail proof. Of course the one exception to this cure is anything related to sleeping, though sometimes an exception slips by here or there.

RUN! Next thing, she'll be walking then you really are screwed. I've been screwed now for 406 days, and it just gets worse when they learn how to do things like climb, jump on beds and run after the boys. We are expecting the Rugrat to elope with the little blond haired three year old down the block.

I am kinda jealous. My 7 month old is not yet rolling over, and I feel like we're "behind". Daily, I try to remind myself: this isn't a contest, every baby progress individually; be happy, she's staying in one place, you don't have to chase her yet; you don't have to take the bumper off the crib and worry about her hitting her head in the middle of the night"; etc.
