Joshua apparently didn't read the child development books that say that your baby is supposed to roll from front to back somewhere around four months. He has done it once, maybe, and that may have been with some help. Recently, however, he has mastered the back-to-front roll, although he's never quite sure what to do once he's on his front.
Two nights ago, sometime between 2:00 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. he decided it was time to sleep on his tummy. I woke up at 6:30, surprised that I hadn't heard from him in so long, so I went to check on him. From the doorway I could tell he was on his stomach. I don't actually remember my feet touching the floor between the door and the crib...I'm pretty sure I leapt. But there he was, sleeping like a little log. I ran to get Jay, who was already up, so that he could see. As we were staring at him he woke up and pushed up on his arms to stare back. I wish I had a picture of the look on his face. It said something like, "What on earth has happened?" He didn't make a sound for the next fifteen minutes but had a very perplexed look on his face, like he still couldn't figure out what had happened. Last night was the same.
Next week he'll be driving.
