Eli rolled over from back to front today. He has almost rolled before but always gets his arm stuck under him and ends up tipping back the wrong way. Once rolled over he managed to push himself along the floor in a way reminiscent of a caterpillar. He travelled about 180° and about a foot forwards.
My little boy is growing so fast. It feels like only yesterday I was awaiting my 12 week scan on tenterhooks terrified that at any moment I would go to the bathroom to find blood or that the scan would reveal that there was no heartbeat. I remember sitting on holiday feeling sick to my stomach obsessing about potential abnormalities that could show up on the 20 week scan and the relief I felt when they told me that everything was fine. I remember how delicate he was when he was freshly here all curled up in my arms.
Now he is a chubby little 4 month old who laughs and giggles and who is beginning to travel around all by himself. For the first time in my life I can say that I feel content. I am happy.
