Documentation of the roll

Well, Holden has been rolling from front to back since around month 3. You know how sometimes they do it when they are teeny tiny by a fluke? But somehow I never actually documented when he became so consistent with the roll. I let him nap on his belly and so he has always (since around 3 months) rolled to his back once he wakes up from his nap. Since we have the wood floors he is always on a thick pallet, which I noticed made rolling quite more of a challenge for him. But now he is even consistent on the thick pallet. So here is a recent documentation of Holden's roll.

getting in the head down position. (he pushes off the surface with his head.) notice fingers in mouth. they are now ALWAYS in his mouth. more teeth to come, i suppose.

bottom's up and ready to roll. fingers still in mouth.

and now, we're on our back and able to view the world (or the ceiling)

So now we just need to work on back to front. He rolls from his back to his side, but really has no interest in staying on his belly anymore. Unless, he can view himself in his little mirror. He still thinks that little reflection looking back at him is so funny!
