In which we introduce Elizabeth to our main hobby

Our insurance company thinks that our deck is a safety hazard and has given us until mid-July to repair it. So Grandpa H came over today to pull it down.  I sat Elizabeth in her Bumbo so she could watch him from the dining room.  She sat quietly for quite a long time, although I'm not sure if she was more fascinated by what Grandpa was doing or by her toes!


Surprisingly, her initiation into the world of power tools was not the most exciting milestone reached today - as of about 5am she finally learned how to deliberately roll from her back to her front.  She first rolled from front to back some time ago, and has been happily rolling onto her side for a long time but the other direction was not consistent until today. 


It's amazing how quickly she's mastered the skill.  Two days ago she could roll but it was accidental.  It was obvious she couldn't quite figure out what she was doing to make it happen.  Yesterday she was able to mostly get from back to front except for one arm and her shoulder which was stuck under her body.  This morning she figured out how to free the arm, and by 8am she was rolling over and over and over and over.  Daddy kept moving over in bed in order to give her space, and nearly fell out!  Maybe the little one has been listening to mommy sing one too many silly songs...

Oh, the rolling! It's so much fun, isn't it? Our 3-month-old can *almost* roll from tummy to back ow, but it's definitely accidental. :)

Oops! I meant to say "now." She can almost roll from tummy to back...now.
