Day 40: August 12th, 2010

We have a new milestone! Paige has been thisclose to rolling over forever. Well, back to belly rolling over... not so much on the belly to back. Kind of a long story how it all happened:

Tonight we started our deswaddling process (aka going cold turkey). It was a looong night! From about 10 pm until 2 am she was up every 15 minutes, no joke. So around 11 pm she starts making some weird noises and it was my turn to go check on her. I come into the room and she is laying on her tummy - wide awake, smiling, and looking SO proud of herself! Of course I had to get a few pictures before she went back to bed.

I'm so glad it wasn't a fluke thing - last night she rolled over 3 times and already today she's rolled over 3 times as well. Hopefully she'll learn rolling back the other way soon too, I didn't mind it last night because she was so cute but I could see the whole crying to get flipped back over thing all night would get old!

In the mornings while I prepare her cereal (which takes all of like, 45 seconds?), I stick her in her bounce seat. I don't always strap her in since I'm within arms reach and it's seriously like less than a minute. This morning, as she's babbling away to herself, I turn around to say hi and I see her sitting in it like this. I'm going to have to start strapping her in because this is her new thing when I set her down for a sec! She scoots forward and sits upright on the edge, which makes mommy squirmy but she loves doing.

Sorry about the poor picture quality on those. I was trying to go fast because obviously, I was getting nervous!

Another really fast picture I had to take (although I wish I had time to back up & center her in it) - she grabs this blanket, sticks it in her mouth, and then holds her hands up in the air. I have no idea what goes on in babies heads! :)

She LOVES my little alarm clock
I can't believe she turns 5 months old tomorrow!
