Paul Rolled Over! (And I Missed It)

About a week ago, Paul had his four month well child checkup at the pediatrician. Going through the checklist, the doctor asked if Paul had flipped over yet.

My answer: not yet.

The doctor’s response: keep an eye on him, he should soon.

And then just a few days ago, I was with my friend’s house who has a baby born only 3 days before Paul, and she mentioned that her son had rolled over for the first time a couple weeks ago already. In casual conversation, she even mentioned that she was fortunate to get his fist time even recorded on her cell phone video camera.

And then last night happened.

Last night, I was in the kitchen cleaning up from dinner. The big kids were outside with their dad enjoying an after dinner ice cream cone. Paul was in the adjacent living room, laying on his back, kicking on the floor.

In true 4th child fashion, Paul rolled over, and I completely missed it.

The only person who saw it? Little Miss Vivi, who just happened to be our dinner guest for the evening, while her momma attended some fancy shmancy no babies allowed event downtown.

I’ve asked Vivi how it all went down, and unfortunately she’s keeping her lips sealed, unwilling to discuss the event.

Sigh. Baby Paul is growing up, and I feel like I’m missing it, even though I stay at home with him everyday. The next thing you know, I’ll be enrolling him in kindergarten, and taking him to soccer practice.

I love the excitement of hitting milestones, but at the same time they’re kinda bittersweet as well. Especially when you find yourself missing them because you were busy washing dishes.

How about you? Has your baby hit any milestones you’ve missed because you’re busy doing the dishes?
