Last week was a big week for our little 5 month, 3 week and 6 day old Ruby. Like really big. Get a load of all this…
She went from rolling over once every week or so to once every all the time. She’s only rolling from front to back over her left shoulder, and I don’t think it’s with intent. I think she’s trying to move forward and using the right side of her body more than the left. But, hey, it’s still something!
She’s also starting to shuffle around a little bit on her tummy. She can turn around and (albeit very slowly) scoot backwards. Of course this also happens when she’s trying to move forward. Poor girl. The harder she tries to get after something the further away she gets.
As if that wasn’t enough, she started babbling. That’s like Christmas for my anxiety! Right now it’s lots of da-da-das and na-na-nas.
Oh, and one more little thing. She’s sleeping through the night. She’s had a sleep stretch of 8-12 hours every night for the last week. I was telling another mom about all the sleeping Ruby’s been doing at stroller bootcamp.
She casually replied with, “Oh yeah! He did that every time he went through a growth spurt too!”
To which I said, “Oh yeah… I didn’t consider that.”
And then in my head I said, “BOO!!!!”
