On rolling over and an anti-climactic father’s day
Light Summer Glow Makeup Tutorial
The irony of what happened last Sunday killed me.
Justin returned home from a weekend away with his buddies, hiking a mountain in Western North Carolina. And just 10 minutes before he walked in the door, Luke rolled over!
I didn’t see it, but I heard it. And he hasn’t rolled over since so I actually think it was a total accident.
I had set him on his belly on the floor while I stepped around the kitchen counter to cut an apple up for David. I heard a soft noise against the floor, took two steps to lay eyes on Luke, and there he was on his back! He looked surprised, but also quite impressed with himself as much as a 4 month old could.
Justin then arrived home from his weekend trip and I said, “Luke just rolled over!”
“Are you pregnant?” he asks, “Because last time you told me about someone rolling over you also had other news!”
It was just a few days before Father’s Day LAST year that I told Justin that I was pregnant with Luke. And David rolling over for the “first” time was what triggered my sharing the news. You can read the story here.
I told him that I was NOT pregnant, and we both laughed and looked at the boys. David was 6 months old when I found out I was pregnant with Luke, and the idea of having two kids 14 months apart sounded both fun and intense.
And it is exactly that, it’s really fun to see Luke notice and watch David, and I just melt inside when David, very gently, bends over to give Luke a hug. I cannot wait until they play together, and when they try to make each other laugh. And there are also very high stress times when they both need something at the exact same time, or when they are both crying.
Just to be clear, I am not pregnant and we are not trying. Our life is very full right now, and while I wouldn’t say I feel like I’m done having babies, I’m perfectly happy with my two boys right now!
