on a roll!

devin rolled over!!!!!!! hes been attempting to roll from his belly to his back for the last 2 weeks or so with no success. he was working so hard at it but just couldnt get past that annoying arm of his. he would grunt and groan and get stuck and then he would scream and cry (he hates tummy time in general). but yesterday morning he got it and just rolled right over. it was so funny because all of the energy he was using on his old method that never worked for him went right out the window and he just calmly and quietly rolled onto his back! i screamed and laughed and probably scared the crap out of him, but he did it again a second time just a minute later, and is rolling like a champ now. no more tummy time for him, he totally knows how to get out of that annoying activity now!

thank you so much aunt kathy for the baby food maker! we LOVE it! we used it for the first time tonight and its really cool. i made sweet potatos for devin and hes still not so sure about the eating with a spoon thing but we're going to keep trying now and then until he enjoys it.
the beaba babycook is what its called and it works great. it steams food and processes it and gets it to the perfect consistency. it was so nice not to have to cook the food first. it only took about 15 minutes from start to finish including clean up.

today was the first time devin took interest in fraggle our cat. he laughs like crazy at the dogs for the last 2 weeks or so and has watched them for a couple months now but somehow has failed to notice the very large grey thing that is always lurking close by. we were on the floor and fraggle came near and devin looked at him and cracked up! he thought he was so funny and he actually reached out and touched him, well more like flailed his arm and smaked him and then grabbed a clump of fur and held on tight! fraggle didnt care at all and just stayed there purring of course. i got a picture of the aftermath, its really funny if you look to see what devin has in his hand!


  1. Oh I'm squealing with delight too and Dave is looking at me funny. That is so awesome on the rolling. Devin is just doing fantastic!! Watch out, he will be wedging under things soon!!! I'm so thrilled for you guys (and a little jealous) about the Beaba. We have a food processor and a steamer so Dave wouldn't let me get it. But I hear fabulous things about it!! What fun!! When you try bananas, let me know, thats the one thing I can't get the consistency right on.

  2. awwwwwwwwwwwwwww! I love the rolling sequence photos!! Yay Devin! And I too am a lil jealous about the baby food maker. I may have to go get one.
