They See Me Rollin’
Little Indy looking pleased to see the world right-side up.
We take simple movements for granted. The act of sitting up, or even rolling onto your side. For babies, these small, everyday movements take deep focus and every ounce of effort.
I put my daughter, Indy, on her back as often as possible to get her familiar with all the ranges of motion she can do from that position. Gradually, she started twisting her head to see her surroundings. Then a leg would follow, drifting over her torso like a nice yoga stretch. I would watch her and put little toys around her to coax her over.
Then one morning, when she was just one day shy of 15 weeks, Indy kicked her leg up and over and—poof!—rolled completely onto her tummy. Just like that, Indy was on the move, and she looked so pleased with herself.
I got down to her eye level, so she could examine the world from her belly after arriving there solo for the first time. It was an amazing moment—seeing all of the moving parts click to bring her to her goal was fascinating and made me so proud. — Bonnie
