Why the Tree of Life?


Rolling Over

Ayla rolled over yesterday for the first time. She went from her back to her tummy. She actually likes being on her tummy, thank goodness. She simultaneously discovered her toes yesterday. So, when she is on her back, she hunts for her toes, finds them, grins, and slowly topples over on to her tummy. She enjoys doing this so much that she practiced between the hours of 1am and 3:30am as I laid beside her with my head on her boppy pillow saying "Ayla, please go to sleep."


  1. And you were caught between feeling frustrated that here it was in the wee hours of the morning and your baby is refusing to sleep, and being utterly charmed by her amazing new trick and her determination to get it right.

  2. Ah sister! I feel your pain!! You are much more calm in handling it than I ever was though!

    Congrats on the two milestones!!!
