Yesterday, at 13 weeks and 3 days old, Little Man rolled over for the first time. Then the second time, and the third.
This marks the end of Little Man’s teenie baby stage and the start of his mobility and independence. I know from having LP that one day a baby will roll from back to front, then front to back and before you know it they are crawling or bum shuffling across the room.
LM is our last baby. I’m not going to have another teenie weenie stay-in-one-place ever again. That is obviously bittersweet but I would not go through the newborn weeks again for anything. I am happy that we, as a family, are out of the newborn phase and I’m looking forward to the next stages in LM’s development.
I cannot wait to see Little Man roll over consistently, to sit up and to pull himself up to standing. The next months are going to fly by and before I know it LM will be running around without a care in the world like his big Sister does now. Right now, I cannot imagine LM being a proper little talking, walking person but I know the time will come – and it will feel like yesterday I was sitting here watching him roll over for the first time.
