One Fell Out

Yesterday was a momentous day. You're thinking,"yeah right Alisa you think everything that baby does is amazing." Well that is true. However yesterday Keegan reached the developmental milestone of rolling over. I put him on his back to play with his gym and went to do the dishes. When I checked on him he was on his stomach struggling to do pushups. So I scooped him up and danced around. Then of course we had to call Tom who wasn't quite as excited. In his defense he was in the middle of a project with someone in his office. He hasn't rolled again but I did find him upside down in his crib last night. His little legs go a mile a minute.

More exciting news:


Today he is wearing his first cloth diaper!
They are so cuddly and soft I wish they came in adult sizes. Ahhh...fleece underwear.
