She Almost Had It

Our youngest grandchild, Quinn, will be 5 months old tomorrow, so now she's old enough to be doing new tricks and learning new things for us to oooh and aaah over. Today during our floor time in the warmth of the south facing livingroom she tried her darndest to roll over.

"So Grammie, do you want to see me to do a trick?"

"Unhhh, ooooh, strain, grunt, unhhh - am I there yet?"

She was clever enough to use the big red flower attached to her mat as a tool for pulling herself over.

And she's up on her side. She's such a little roly-poly that it's hard for her to stay on her side. See how she's still using the big flower for pulling.

"Oh no! I fell back. Help me Grammie."

So I flipped her onto her tummy so she could see how she's supposed to end that particular exercise. One of these days she'll do it all by herself. Hopefully when she does she'll be on the floor and not roll off a couch or a bed.
There are so many changes in the first year for these little guys. If you miss a month of seeing them, chances are you'll miss something exciting. Go Quinn, and Tate, and Hannah, and..., and..., and....

But she's your little fatso Sara, but so sweet. She'll lose that baby fat quickly enough when she starts crawling and walking and running....

Isn't it amazing what they think up on their own? Who ever said babies were not that smart. Of course they are. She's a cutie. I love grandchildren.
