Let’s Roll

With an eight week old, you figure you can lie them on the couch and trust they will be okay for a few moments. I mean, where will they go at eight weeks? It’s not as if they can roll over or anything, right? Wrong. During supervised tummy time on the couch, Maxton was becoming pestered with being on his belly and started arching his back and pushing off with his left arm. “There’s no way you are going to roll over sweetie, you’re okay.” I said aloud to him. Not 15 seconds later he pushed off with his left arm and leg, twisted his hip and landed on his back looking dumbfounded. Did that just happen?
