Layla rolled from belly to back on Sept 25! I had her on her belly with her arm underneath her a little so she didn’t have to figure out how to get her shoulder out of the way. It took a lot of encouragement, leaning over her and talking to her and jingling toys just out of her line of vision so she’d have to keep turning her head further and further back to see and then… bing! Onto her back she went. She did it few times that night, but she hasn’t done it much since then. She moves around so much when she’s on the floor. She’ll go on her side and lift up her legs so they are parallel to her body, then move her torso to straighten herself out, so suddenly she’s at a 90 degree angle from where she was just a moment previously. She’s done that for a long time. Yesterday at Grandpaman and Grandma G’s she was on a blanket on the floor and she kept rolling onto her side so far that we thought she might end up rolling onto her belly. But not yet, so far!
