he rolled!


/begin mommy talk

I’m so proud! Jakob was on his playmat on the floor while I ate lunch. I looked down to check on him, and he was on his back, trying to get the toys I’d put out of reach. I glanced at the TV, ate a bite or two, and when I looked back at him he was on his stomach playing with the toy!

He’s done a complete 180 roll two or three times while he was sleeping, but while awake (and, I’m assuming, deliberate) he’s tried to turn but gotten stuck at the armpits because he didn’t know how to get his arms out of the way. So he’d wind up with his belly and legs face-down but his chest twisted and his head back.

This was the first time I’ve ever seen him do a 180 while awake! Not on only that, but a few minutes later once he was back on his back, he was playing with a toy and rolled over again, while I watched and still holding the toy!

I know this means a step closer to crawling and any chance I have to knit while he’s awake will go right out the window, but it’s still a milestone for him and I’m so proud!

Regular knitting stuff will resume in the next post.

  1. Yeah Jakob!

    now you also need to keep your balls of yarn out of his reach, because it’s soooo tempting for a little one to want to go for those colorful yarncakes and want to put them in the mouth. Yummy!


  2. Much applause for Jakob. Congratulations, proud momma.
