EmJ informed me the other day that we need to "give Reillee more tummy time...because there are lots of things she needs to learn before she can crawl and walk."
I asked her where she picked up the phrase "tummy time" and she replied that she read in a book.
So my 8 year old has read more parenting books than myself.
Nonetheless, I decided to give Reillee some tummy time, and tonight, at the ripe old age of 7 1/2 months, she finally rolled over. Back to tummy, tummy to back. 23 reps, followed by grinning and panting. I may have five kids, but watching new tricks never, ever, ever gets old.
So, on the gratitude wall tonight I will write, "I am thankful for tummy time."
