The Bun hung out with Daddy, getting her exercise in her saucer plus just trying to roll over in her crib on her own.

She spent probably a total of 2-3 hours in her saucer today. She simply entertains herself plus gets exercise. What a great invention! And more and more, she extends her legs and locks her knees putting weight on her legs and feet. I love it because it is on her terms – she is just her exploring and exercising on her own.

Also, it is great to see her trying to roll over in her crib on her own and she is doing it so much the past week or so. She can roll from her back to her tummy, but then often gets stuck. We’re waiting for all this practice to pay off and for her to be able to roll from her tummy to her back. She seems really close. Once again, it is great to see her initiate this activity versus an intense PT session. It is on Ella’s terms and this means she will likely accomplish her goals faster because it is what she wants to do. All these pictures were snapped without our intervention – we just walked over to her crib at various times and found her in these positions.

Peace baby!

She is sooooo cute!!! Just want to hug her. My kids LOVE looking at her pictures and my 4 year old keeps asking “when can we play with Ella??” 🙂

Ella, WOW!!!! you really seem to have the saucer and crib action under control. It’s great to see you be able to choose to excercise on your own. I am praying that the next steps will be with OT and that you will keep up the steady progress. I am also looking forward to your speech therapy that should be fun. I will catch you later. Love,Grandpa!!!!

Adorable! I hope you have a bigger crib. She’ll be pulling up on the sides of this one before you know it. 🙂
