roll over, roll over

Eva rolled over for the first time this week. I know, I know, what's the big deal, right? For me this is a big deal. I know I've written time and time again about Eva and her minor health issues. Well, these issues haven't allowed for her to have much time on the ground. Tummy time isn't a phrase that is said around here very much. I would hear of other babies younger than Eva already reaching this milestone and it made me wonder if Eva should be as well. I learned quickly when Soren was younger to not compare my children with other people's children. How can a parent not compare though? It's inevitable. I think it's what we do with that comparisons that is important. With her never being on the ground, I knew she would be a bit behind. So, when she rolled over this week I was so excited. She's not as behind as I had expected. Now the worrying sets in. She now sleeps on her stomach and every parent knows how unsettling this can be. If that's not unsettling enough when I told someone she had rolled over her response was, "She'll be a teenager before you know it!"
