The Rollover

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

Back after another delay in posting. I don't know what it is, but lately it has been harder for me to get motivated to post. And that's a downside to blogging - the feeling you get when you haven't posted in awhile is like the feeling you get when you haven't kept in touch with a friend very well...times 100!

Anyway, a storm has been brewing at our house for a few months now and that storm is Caroline's desire to get moving. That storm came to a head last week when, after an hour or so of wiggling, she finally rolled over for the first time! Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of most of the process, but, when C did an attempted reenactment on Sunday, I took pictures.

To start, she hangs out on her side and swings her legs and hips...

...and she takes a break...

...then swings a little bit more (this pic wouldn't adjust properly - it should've been turned once counter-clockwise)...

...gets almost over as she plays with her favorite rings...

...and finally finishes on her stomach (this picture was taken at the end of the actual first rollover)!

Here are some other pictures of the little girl on the go:

In her swing

And in her makeshift Little Room (it's a space for her that one of her PT's recommended - it helps her grab toys on her own and feel more enclosed - see the link for more info) and on her sounding board (a board she lies on that gives her vibration feedback as she moves)

After all of this moving, she is tired - so tired that, after playing with her monitors, she just falls asleep with them right on her face:


  1. Yeah, big deal- very big deal! Thanks for sharing. Love the pictures. Love that baby, love you all, Grandma

  2. Yea! Good for her! That is awesome!

  3. Thanks for the reenactment. Sweet pictures of a tired girl with monitor leads on her face :-)

  4. Congratulations on the first rollover! That's awesome! I haven't been on your blog in a while, but now that I have my own, I will be checking in on you more frequently! I am glad to see you guys doing well - it's been a while since we've caught up. We would love to get together with you and the Barkhuffs sometime!
    Love, Krystal
