This past week, Grace decided to become a roller. The only thing is she has only rolled for mommy and Pap Pap. So that leads one to believe that she either never rolled at all, or she has decided to be selective in who she shares this milestone with. I just hope soon that she will decide to let me into the club too.
I think even Nolin is trying to earn his way into the exclusive Those Who Have Witnessed The Roll club. Besides continually offering verbal encouragement (You can do it baby Grace, you can roll), he has even taken to physical demonstrations.
Nolin will get down on the ground and say watch me Grace as he begins to roll all over the floor with no regard to what objects may be in his way. She just stares at him and smiles. I am not sure if it is because she looks up to him, or if she is beginning to realize how easy it is for us to get wrapped around her finger.
In a further attempt to win her favor, last night Nolin spent his bedtime routine time giving Grace hugs and kisses rather than trying to keep all the attention for himself. She just smiled and laughed the whole time.
And so begins the start of a lifelong bond and friendship…
