In news from the home front, Jacob received his very own brand new white wooden crib (thanks, mom and dad!). He's been slowly outgrowing his Pack n' Play bassinet, and the grandparents have been dying to have this set up for ages. We finally got it last week and Gaines and I put it together on Saturday night. I'm so glad we didn't try to do it while I was pregnant. One, we wouldn't have had anywhere to put it because the room hadn't been cleared out yet and two, I really enjoyed having Jacob in our room for the first four months. Also, I didn't pick out the crib bedding until after he was born! (Don't worry, the blanket on the railing is just there for show...it's neatly packed away at the moment as he snoozes beside me.)
Other accomplishments include a newfound mobility! Although Jacob technically has been rolling from his stomach to his back (ever so slowly) for a few weeks, in the last few days he has quickly learned to roll from his back to his stomach. He looks up, wide-eyed, as if to ask, "How'd that happen?" He still hasn't yet completely mastered rolling onto his back yet from this position, but he seems to be enjoying time on his tummy more and more. So much so, that he now sleeps about half the time on his stomach, which freaked out his parents at first. He's growing up, our boy. I'm looking forward both with trepidation and joy to the day he figures out how to crawl. Right now about all he can do is scoot himself around in a circular motion, thank goodness. We'll be getting new carpet in our apartment in the next month or so (since it's AT LEAST 5 years old...have we really been here that long?), and it couldn't be at a better time.
