Two big firsts

Last night when I got home from work Son told me the exciting news that Collin had rolled over on his own! They were having “tummy time” in Collin’s room after Son picked him up from school & Collin was holding himself up on his forearms and just sort of pushed himself over onto his back. (I thought that he would roll over from his back to his tummy first, but I guess he had his own way in mind!) After I finished jumping up & down for joy (okay, not literally) and telling Collin how proud I was of him & what a big boy he was, I immediately called my mom to share the good news. Son told me that he only did it once, and that he tried to get him to do it again but he wouldn’t. I was so so excited that he had rolled over, but honestly a little upset that I wasn’t there to see it. I was talking to my mom and relaying what Son had told me about the great event, thinking to myself that it would probably be a while before I would get to see it, when I put him down on the blanket & he immediately rolled over!!! I think I probably made my mom deaf screaming so loud “Oh my gosh, He did it again!”! It was amazing, he was so adorable. Definitely the highlight of the week.

Then, if that wasn’t enough excitement in one day, after I was yelling “He did it again!” Son came in Collin’s room to check it out. Son was talking to Collin and Collin let out the biggest laugh ever! He has been “giggling” or making smiles and “cooing” type noises for a while now, but that was the first true laugh that we had heard. It was so cute! He did it over & over again, so we got out the camera and took a video of it. Of course while we were videoing him it wasn’t quite as much as before, but he still made an obvious big-boy laugh. I will try to add the video to the blog later – so precious!

Well, that was our big excitement last night – that’s what I call an awesome day!
