Tummy Time became productive. Normally, he loves being on his tummy so much that he falls asleep and doesnt have alot of interest in getting up on his arms. But, all of a sudden, he was interested and did such a good job! He stayed like this for a long time. You could tell he was so proud, he just smiled and smiled and talked and talked. I am sure it helped that I kept saying "YAY JACKSON! YAY JACKSON!" I just am so proud of him. AND THEN.......
HE TURNED OVER.... ALL BY HIMSELF! While on his tummy, he turned all the way over to his back! He wasnt even scared. He did so great! I was really surprised that he turned from the front to the back first. He spends so much more time on his back, I really thought he would turn to his first first. But that silly arm gets in his way. :)
He did get frustrated though, he so bad wanted to move! He just couldnt figure it out. He kept clawing at the blanket and was kicking his feet. So, eventually, we were too frustrated to stay on our tummy! We will just keep trying!
We also tried the exersaucer. This was his first time! He loved everything about it! So much to look at! BUT, he is still alittle small. I guess he is still not long enough, so he had no control over his body. But its all ready and waiting for him to grow a couple more inches.
Jackson is so happy when he wakes up in the morning! He will just lay in his bed and talk until I go in to get him. This is the sweet face, I get to see every morning. Can you even believe just how precious he is!!!
