the reverse roll has been mastered!

I had a feeling IJG had learned to roll from his back to tummy based on the way I found him in his crib yesterday morning and after his nap. Then, in the afternoon, we were playing on the floor and he rolled right over. By evening he wouldn't do anything but roll over.

Here's a video of IJG giggling with daddy and rolling from back to tummy last night.

Here he is this morning. I used to put him under his play gym, on his back, while I got ready in the morning and knew he couldn't go anywhere. I had a feeling it wouldn't work this morning. I no longer have a stationary baby!

IJG is 4 months old!


IJG has made a lot of progress in the last month. He started holding and chewing on toys, he rolls over from tummy to back, and he rolls from his back onto his side, but can't yet roll completely over. He also has 2 teeth! Both his lower, middle teeth broke through about a week ago. He's been a drooling mess since, but didn't have any problems otherwise. He is much easier to entertain now. Between talking to him and putting him on the floor with toys, he is pretty happy. He also enjoys his diaper changes, bath time, and walks in the carrier or stroller. He loves to look around outside or in stores and doesn't just fall asleep every time he's in the carrier now. This is very helpful, since I'd rather have him entertained while we are out so he'll nap at home and give me time to get things done. He is sooo happy. It's easy to get him to smile and he giggles when we tickle his feet, hands, or tummy. IJG goes to school for 3 hours a day during the work week so I can work from the office during that time. He has done quite well and just completed his second week there. He doesn't seem to mind when I leave him and doesn't notice too much when I return. I don't want him to be upset, but I'd kinda like him to prefer my company to that of strangers!!! I'm sure he'll hit the age where he freaks upon my leaving before too long. IJG is still a big boy but his growth has greatly slowed and he's approaching the norm for his age. At 2 months he was at the 90th percentile for weight and he is now at the 70th percentile at about 15.5 pounds. He is 25 1/4 inches long which is the 55th percentile for length.
