A Day of Firsts

Yesterday was a day of firsts. The first day Lydia laughed was April 20th. The first day Lydia laughed for the camera was May 12th. No, really. See for yourself:
And the first day Lydia decided to roll over was yesterday as well.

The first time she did it, Jer and I thought it was a fluke. Jer put her on her back to kick at one of her toys and we both walked away, Jer to man the grill, me to man the stove. When I checked back with her she was on her stomach with one arm pinned under her.

So I quickly flipped her back over and waited, and waited and waited and she did nothing. I walked away again, and again she flipped over.

Clearly she's a smart ass who likes to make her mommy think she's crazy.

The third time I got smart. I sat silently on the couch several feet away from her and caught this:
My my my... she's gonna be on the move before we know it.


  1. Adorable! Smart little girl, huh?

  2. I'm just gonna take her now.

    Your wooden floor scares me! But then maybe your kids aren't like mine and maybe I should have mine helmetted always? :\ Buuut wood floors are actually softer than tile floors so maybe it's not so bad. Just with my girls, I see an uncarpeted floor and immediately flash to split lips and broken eyebrows and big forehead goose eggs. :(

  3. lol, I have to get sneaky like you, Margaret rolls when no one is in the room, but as soon as anyone comes in , she is helpless little baby :)

  4. Congrats! Now you've got two movers and shakers.
