Roll, roll, roll your body, Gently on the floor...

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Let's do this some more.
(So, so sorry. Lame, I know, but this tune keeps going through my head and I'm trying to find an outlet before I go crazy!)

Seven month old Laurel has been mobile for a couple of months now. She's not quite crawling, in fact, we thought for sure she was going to skip that step until this past week. She has only recently started creeping by dragging her belly, arms outstretched, and toe inching it forward. No, her mobility is not in crawling, but instead by rolling. She manages to get to any object or place her little heart desires by putting her body in full spin. Round and round she goes, where she stops, only Laurel knows.


She begins at the playhouse. So much to do here, but alas, she is a baby and her interest quickly wavers. She looks around for something more interesting and finds...








...rattles and all things chewable. One tooth in and another trying to emerge means TEETHING!









Looky, looky, a ball. Oooohhhh, and a stereo with gobs and gobs of buttons to push.









Score! Ian left his train out, and he's no where to be seen. Finally, she has a chance to play with it.









But wait, a container with all its contents still enclosed? This can not be...SPILL!








The destruction continues...











Mama, enough already with the camera and give me some sweet, nourishing booby juice! NOW!!!!!

Look at her all over that floor!

My youngest used to scoot all over the place. On her back. It was hilarious. She could get all over the floor that way. We would find her halfway under the couch somtimes.

That is a great series of pictures! Busy, busy babygirl!

My oldest didn't crawl till she was nine months old - and was walking six weeks later! My middle child was up on hands and knees at four months, but didn't crawl till seven months - and walked at 15 months. My youngest? Ummm... I don't remember... (But I DO have pictures!)

Wish we could see the rolling live - it looks like a mighty efficient form of travel!

I love the one where she looks like she's about to roll into the speaker. Precious!

Awwww! Roll, Laurel, roll! Love, love, love it all! I remember those days with my older one, and now am soooooo looking forward (I think) to my second time around with my younger one.

Heh! Rolling around makes for one thirsty baby!!!
