Just a few minutes ago we heard Meera crying loudly on the monitor. I ran up there to see what was going on (she had gone to bed at 6:30 and had been sound asleep since then). I found her in her crib ON HER BELLY!!!!!!!!!! She had rolled over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She rolled over! I'm pretty sure she was crying because she couldn't figure out how to get back over onto her back to go back to sleep (since, after all, she has never slept in any position other than her back, ever). I rocked her back to sleep and then laid her down on her back again. But, anyhow... MEERA ROLLED OVER! Age 11 months + 1 day, Meera Grace finally rolled over! Photo below taken yesterday-- I was working in my office at home when Margie started calling to me to come in to the kitchen quick to take a picture-- Margie had never done that before. I ran in there wondering what was happening that warranted the photo op. And this is what I found (below). I wasn't sure exactly what the big deal was, but Margie was standing there, unable to contain her delight, insisting that Meera looked "absolutely adorable" in this dress and sandals (that Margie had picked out and dressed her in), and she insisted that we get photos of it. So, there she is, Little Miss Roll Over, All Dressed Up With Nowhere To Go, In The Pink Dress and Sandals.
Peter and the Wolf has been big around here for quite awhile now. Braydon sits on the floor of the family room, turning the pages of the book, while the music plays along on the stereo, and the threesome sit there captivated. All three Johnson-McCormick bambinos love it.
