She did it . . . . and I missed it!
Jericho and I were on the floor playing today when I decided to bust out my camera (pic is from today) because Jericho was on her tummy and she wasn't crying. Very rare people, she's not a tummy girl. So I'm snapping a few pictures and by this time Jericho starts squirming because she been on her tummy for a whole minute (that was sarcasm in case you were wondering). Being the nice mommy that I am I put her on her back so she wouldn't scream, only to pull her to her side and then to her tummy, being a not so nice mommy, because I'm trying to teach her how to roll over. While she was on her tummy (and not screaming, again rare) I decide to change the CD in the CD player which means I have to turn my back to Jericho, after changing the CD I turn back around and . . . . . she's on her back.
Wanna know what my first thought was - hey who turned the baby over (ask I look at Gamba) then I realize what happened. . . . Jericho rolled over for the first time. . . . and I missed it! I was so happy for her that I started clapping and being silly and she laughed and was excited, but then I got a little depressed because I missed it. To make myself not think about missing it I called Seth to inform him of Jericho's newest accomplishment. He said that he was going to quit his job because he misses everything (Mr. Over Exaggerator) but I quickly reminded him that I stay home and I missed it, so there is no need for him to quit his job. After getting off the phone I did what any parent would do - I tried to get her to do it again so I could see it. No such luck. She started screaming and throwing a fit which reminded me that it was nap time. So, I figured I would blog about it while she was sleeping and we'd try it again when she wakes up. Speaking of waking up, I think I hear her, wish me luck!
