The Tank Mobilizes

So finally, about 4-5 months later than expected, Jack has learned how to roll over! He's been so close since about 4 months but could never get that big ole thigh lifted over. And then one day, Jon and are playing with Jack on the floor, and he just flips onto his belly like he's been doing it all his life.
And that's all it took. Since then he's been rolling around like it's his job. Which poses a few new problems. Now he cries if he wakes up and finds himself on his belly, which has caused more than a few sleep disruptions. And he rolls until he hits an object (like a wall or the coffee table) and then cries when he can't roll anymore. And he rolls, and rolls, and rolls, until he's rolled clear across the room and is teetering on the edge of the steps. Yikes! Gone are the days of "plop Jack in the middle of the room with toys while I get some things done."
But all complaints aside it's fun to watch him grow up and learn new things. He's pretty proud of the way he can get around now. And I'm pretty proud I can finally cross "rolls over" off my devlopmental list. :)
