A sad entry in the lists of firsts from the past few days is Wes’ first owie. I shockingly came across this top lip bump one day as we played on the floor, and it’s only in hindsight that I’ve deduced that a certain trumpet was likely involved. I think you can make out the injury in the video below. I guess accidents have been in the air of late. Our young friends Finn and Sofi recently landed on the injured list, too.
A happier development involves Wes finally rolling from his tummy onto his back. I love too that he managed it exactly one year from the date when his parents learned they were pregnant with the little guy himself! What a difference a year makes.
Craig was asleep when it happened, so even though Wes performed this acrobatic act several times that morning for his Mama, I was concerned that with no other witnesses, perhaps I had imagined the whole thing. The scoundrel refused to repeat the feat for his Papa later that day, but thankfully showed off his new talent a day or two later. So I’m not crazy after all (at least not about this).
Still, you’ll have to take our words for it. You see, what follows is a most anti-climactic video, where you will NOT see Wes rolling in any direction but rather asserting in no uncertain terms that he is not, in fact, a performing seal. That’s my boy!
