Rolling Rolling Rolling

This video is from two weeks ago. Second Son was three weeks and two days old. He rolled over from his tummy to his back about ten times in a row. He did the same thing when he was four weeks old. In the past few days, I haven't seen him roll over. Perhaps he gained too much weight so his arms aren't strong enough anymore. Or perhaps he can control his arms enough to keep himself from flinging them forward with enough strength to turn over. Or maybe he can still roll over; I just haven't given him enough time on his stomach.


  1. You may know this, but it's common for newborns to roll right away, but they usually lose the skill before they get it back at the normal time. I'm afraid you have no reason (yet) to suspect Second Son will be an Olympic athlete.

  2. Mazzucco, I thought it might be something like that since he hasn't rolled over recently. I heard from a friend at church that her son rolled himself right off the changing table at the hospital just after he was born. A nurse had to catch him!

    Personally, I hope none of the kids are Olympic-potentials. I absolutely do not want to crawl out of bed at 4 am to take someone to practice!


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
