Rolling...At Last!

For weeks now (months even), the boys have been on the verge of rolling over. They can roll from front to back, but rolling from back to front has eluded them. They couldn't seem to figure out what to do with their left arm once they started turning so it prevented them from completing the roll.

Based on his interest in moving, we assumed Ezra would roll first. He is certainly a kinesthetic baby. He loves his Jumperoo and has found a way to move without rolling. He lays on his back, flaps his arms, furiously kicks his feet, and manages to scoot backwards. It's rather impressive. He has been more motivated to roll and finally, it happened! On Saturday night, we placed the boys on their backs on their playmat while we tucked Eliza in. Ezra was on his stomach when we came back downstairs. I was so sad I missed it!

The next day, Ezra showed off his new trick during Sunday School. I tried to restrain myself from clapping with excitement when he looked up with a smile on his face. One day later, he is practically crawling. He army crawled this afternoon and is no longer happy simply laying on his playmat, staring at the various stuffed animals; he needs to move!

 Upon seeing Ezra move around, Elliott has suddenly taken an interest in moving himself. He is able to roll if we assist him just a little bit. He does most of it on his own, but still cannot get his left arm out of the way. He also scoots on his back and loves turning around in the crib and kicking Ezra.

I think it's time to put up the second crib.


  1. Yay! Our boys were that age when we finally put them into separate cribs, too. Too much wiggling.
    And I love that the picture you posted is in MY yard on MY blanket! Hurray! I made the blog!

  2. Yay for rolling over!!! The idea of the boys in separate cribs is so crazy, but it does make sense.
