Yesterday, Violet rolled over for the first time! I had her on her belly, trying to dry out the rash on her neck, and, without warning, she tucked in her arm and rolled over onto her back. Our eyes locked, both sets wide with surprise, and I yelled to Linda to come see. I rolled Violet back onto her belly, and she obliged with another performance. A little reluctant to accept evidence of Violet's growing up, Linda said, "You're just happy because now you have a post." She knows me too well. Watching Violet roll over brings that unexpected and odd blend of pride and sadness that I think only parents must feel.
