Roll Over Rover...

Nikolai rolled over today! I am so proud of my little boy! And, he did not do it off of me, he did it on his play gym. He only did it once, and I did try a few times.

He had cat-napped on his side and woke up quietly. So I decided to roll him the rest of the way onto his tummy. He didn't fuss, didn't cry or even throw a fit. He actually smiled at me, all the while holding his little head up high! I was so happy the was smiling and not crying!

So of course I had to grab the camera and snap pictures before his little head fell to the ground. Normally, the reason I run and grab my camera is done and over with by the time the camera is ready. But not today! Nope, his little head was still high! So after taking a few pictures I decide to entice him with his rattle from the gym. I call him Mr. Turtle (maybe I should call him crush? LOL)... Anyway, I thought he might roll towards the rattle, and he did! He even smiled at me after he rolled over!

I felt the tears welling up in my eyes as I quickly grabbed my phone to text Brandon the news. I am so proud!
