Rolling over:  A photo essay


Ella and Perry both in position to roll from back to tummy

Ella is successful!!!  She rolled from her tummy to her back!!!

Seconds after Ella rolled over, Perry also rolled from her tummy to her back. 

It happened so fast, Mommy couldn't even get good pictures of it. 

What a big day for milestones!!!

Some fun tummy time together

Update on the green beans:

Wednesday - Perry hated them, Ella liked them

Thursday - Neither one of them cared for them

Friday - Perry ate all of hers (despite the awful looks on her face), Ella didn't seem to like them anymore
