The Boy Can Roll!

I was too busy watching Jack roll over to take pictures while he was actually turning from his back to his stomach, but here is what he looked like as soon as he rolled over. He looks pretty confused about how he got here. (and he kinda looks like he has a unibrow because his eyebrows are so light and the wrinkle on his forehead is so prominent. haha!)
The he realized we were clapping and excited about him hitting this milestone so he started to smile for us. He was pretty proud of himself.
Then he started to realize that being on his stomach was a lot of fun! 
But when your big noggin is in the 90th percentile you start to realize that you can't hold it up forever. He was slowly lowering his head back to the bed.
Ah, the sweet, sweet feeling of laying my head down on the bed. It is hard work to roll over, you know!

And there it is--the first time Jack rolled from his back to his stomach. He has done it repeatedly since then. He has shown off his new skill to his Grammie, Poppa, Aunt Debbie, and our neighbors whenever we ask him to. :-)

I browsed a bit and came across your blog.

You are a very funny gal and as a Dutchborn woman, I can appreciate that.

Not too much conservatism...:)

Anyways, just wanted to tell you that it's refreshing to not read typical 'Americana' blogs...
