Rollin', Rollin', Rollin'

On Friday, Norah rolled over for the first time -- with a lot of coersion, and admittedly, some assistance from us. Since then, we spent the weekend trying to get her to repeat it on her own, but she refused (we tried bribing her with toys, but while she's interested in them, if they're outta reach, her attitude is simply, "eh, oh well").

Then, today -- we all had the day off so we spent the day primarily at home -- she rolled over (no coersion or assistance) 3 times!! We made such a big hoopla over it, you'd think she had solved the energy crisis.

Of course, as soon as we whipped out the video camera in an attempt to capture her new feat on film, all she wanted to do was smile and giggle at the camera (at 5 months old, she already understands how to pose and ham it up for the camera), so we have no footage to prove that she rolled over, but I give you my word that she did, and I'm sure I'll eventually trick her into doing it whilst being filmed.

So, that was really the day's excitement. After she went to bed, I went for a 4 miler (40:37) and that pretty much wrapped up the day.

Ahh, movement. It seems like a good idea until you find them under the dining room table, eating crumbs. ;o)

WTG, Norah! Keep them on their toes.

Yay Norah! Her stubborn streak, however, does not bode well for you in future. ;)

Not only is it great to watch the little ones grow up, learn new things, explore their new-found world of adventures, etc....but, it really is also a financial benefit to you both to have had her (work with me here). Now, instead of going out for dinner and a movie, or some other expensive excursion on a Friday and Saturday night, you guys can just set up shop in your family room, pop some popcorn, put Nora in between two pillows or something,and watch her roll back and forth. You can even turn it into a gambling event, taking bets on whether or not she will reach pillow number #1, or how many time she will roll over in a certain period of time. The possibilities are endless. Endless entertainment for the entire family. :)))))

Another milestone. Movement. (Not the potty-kind) The you thought you ran a lot before having to chase me to get my in my clothes, diaper, coat, shoes...kind of movement. Let the fun begin!
