Roll Over, baby!

We went to Babies “R” Us this morning to purchase a Bumbo chair for Austin. It seems like almost everyone has one and it appears they have the potential to be beneficial. We shall see ;-) We bought the little tray that attaches to the chair, as well. Austin LOVES to sit up. In fact, he prefers to stand (with our assistance, of course.) He doesn’t like to be cradled when he’s held. Nope. He likes to be over your shoulder and “up” where he can see everything around him.

We hadn’t worked on tummy time for over a week because he was sick. My poor little guy. He’s been feeling better, so I decided to resume tummy time. I couldn’t believe my eyes as I watched my son ROLL OVER from his tummy to his back. I thought for sure this was one of those “one time” occurrences… and that he wouldn’t do it again. I was wrong. He did it again and again and again. I was even able to capture this blessed event on video.

I’m so proud of my sweet boy! He’s strong and determined. He has been like this since day one. Each accomplishment gives my heart more joy than you could ever imagine. Each accomplishment is so much more than a milestone to us. Austin is defying the odds. I was told to expect delays and don’t get me wrong, I know there will be delays. I’m not so much worried about WHEN Austin does something, because I know he will do it when he’s ready.

Austin’s doctor appointment with his Primary doctor went well. He’s improved a lot and isn’t running a fever anymore. She wasn’t too concerned about the cysts or fluid around his kidneys. She said she was going to refer us to a Neurosurgeon, just to be safe. She also mentioned that there is a very mild amount of fluid around Austin’s kidneys. She thinks it will resolve on its own. We will recheck the, when he’s 6 months old.

Thank you for your prayers and thoughts. I appreciate it more than you know!

I hope everyone has a lovely (Father’s day!) weekend.



  1. That's wonderful that he's rolling! Lucas is the same way, doesn't like to be cuddled, he's too busy!

  2. Love this post! I can't wait to see what Austin will do with his life, his is such a little champ already. We are rooting him on here in NY!

  3. Wow, great job rolling, Austin!! What a cutie, he is! Thanks for visiting my blog. I look forward to following life with your little guy!
