Her first roll was at 9 weeks. Tummy to back. And I missed it! All week I'd been watching her tummy time and suspected a roll was coming. On Friday night my husband got home from work and I asked him to do tummy time with Elena while I cooked dinner. Cooking away, I heard cheering from her nursery and rushed in only to see her on her back. She had rolled over! 3 weeks later she did her first back to tummy roll and a week after that she started rolling in the opposite direction. So now I have a baby that is constantly rolling every which way. I honestly can't leave her even for a minute or she will not be in the same place when I get back.
Last night, I moved her into the big bed and stopped swaddling her because she just kept wanting to roll out of her bassinet. Silly girl. She slept like a dream! Rolling to her side and back. Moving up and down her cot as she pleased.
Where did the time go? It now appears my little helpless immobile newborn is now a mobile tiny human! She holds her head up, she rolls, the tries to stand at every chance she gets. I though we had more time before our babies tried to grow up? How do people cope when their babies no longer need them? I know she is only 4 months old, but they grow so fast! Soon enough our tiny humans will be rambunctious teens then independent adults!
Oh baby, stop growing so fast!
