My Turtle Grew Legs!
If you remember from this post, I compared Peanut to a turtle. Well a leg-less turtle to be more specific. This is because Peanut, while crawling and pulling up, still could not manage to get his chunky self rolled over from his back to his tummy. Today, my turtle grew legs! On two different occasions he rolled himself over from his back to his tummy like it was no big deal. Like he had been doing it forever, except he hasn't. Only 4 days shy of his 10 month birthday he started rolling. This boy has not read the Pediatricians Guide to Baby's from Birth to 5 because he is doing everything so out of order and backwards! If he had read it he would know that he is supposed to roll before crawl and that if he weighs over 25 pounds he may not crawl until well past his 10 or 11 month mark instead of getting going at 9 months. He would know that he shouldn't be able to eat with a spoon yet but probably should start having his pincer grasp. But Papa Bear and I are taking it all in stride and are just happy to see our Turtle, I mean Peanut rolling over and gettin' where he needs to go.
