Talk about an exciting moment! We were chatting with my mum on the phone a few days ago and had the webcam on Nicholas so she could see his Christmas outfit. Patrick put Nicholas on his tummy so she could see the snowman on his bum, and he suddenly decided to roll over onto his back! We were all so stunned, because he really hasn’t shown any interest in rolling over at all. Patrick put him back on his tummy and he did it again! Even better … we had the video camera running both times – what luck!
We thought he was too heavy to roll himself ( he weighs in at 19 lbs now), but The Baby Book mentioned that some kids (the calm, relaxed ones) just hang out and don’t necessarily fuss about rolling over. It’s going to be a lot more difficult when he starts to move around, eh?!
He hasn’t done it again since then, but he has been trying to roll from his back to his side.
