So Kessler has been strong since birth and so was DD. He enjoyed a nice long tummy time yesterday afternoon. (pic on facebook https://www.facebook.com/#!/media/se...2113799&type=1)
I was showing DH last night how good he was pushing up and BAM! He rolled over belly to back. I though maybe it was a fluke and then he proceeded to do it 2 more times. I thought DD was impressive. She rolled over at 6 1/2 - 7 weeks, but he beat her at 5 1/2 weeks. Geez. He doesn't really have to grow up THAT fast! I'm proud of him, but is it silly that I'm a little sad? I never really did have a floppy newborn with either child, but I guess that's a good thing.
It's so much fun to see them do new stuff though!! I've had 3 floppy newborns, and 2 super strong ones. Aidan has been quite the floppy little man. He's had no desire to even try and figure out what his legs are for up until just a few days ago... he "kind of" made an attempt to put a bit of weight on them! LOL. Anyway, Aidan is probably my last baby, and he is growing up WAY too fast for me!!
It is so much fun to watch them figure out new things. Gillian has flipped herself over by accident a few times, but is greatat rolling to her side. I'm just looking forward to her being a bit more durable and able to handle her sister.

Yay for rolliing. CJ started rolling tummy o back this week as well. Brandon was a preemie so he hit all of his milestones right on target or a little late, but CJ seems in a hurry to grow up, sniff sniff...

Alli smiles at us ALL THE TIME....and has started "talking" to me.....she hasn't rolled yet BUT I very seldom put her on her tummy on the floor. I'm afraid one of the big kids are gonna step on her. I dont even mean my 4 yr old I mean the BIG kids...lol. She does hold her head up when I put her on my shoulder or when I sit her on my lap I dont even hold her head anymore. My cousin is bringing me the bumbo on Thanksgiving and I can;t wait to put her in it.

Yay Kessler! Such a big boy . My kids actually rolled over the exact ages yours did lol. My first rolled right at 7 weeks and my second rolled right at 5 weeks. We'll see when Caleb does it but it wont be long now. It makes me sad though I swear my kids are basically mobile right out of the womb! I wish they stayed babies a bit longer!
These babies definitely need to stop growing up. LOL! Sophia hasn't rolled over yet, but she definitely is trying to sit up when I have her in the boppie. Doctor said she's as strong as a 4 month old. DS was a floppy newborn and did everything a little later than most babies. Then again he was a Preemie so it was expected.
