Rolling, Rolling, Rolling
I came to the realization today that my baby's not a baby anymore. I have known this for awhile, but I think it finally hit me. I have the hardest time with change and he is constantly changing. About a month ago he just up and decided he was done with the pacifier. He hasn't sucked on it since. He will put it in his mouth to chew it, but no sucking. I still get the pacifier when it is time to put him to bed, mostly because it was part of the routine and I just can't let go of it.
He feeds himself at part of almost every meal everyday and when I am feeding him from a baby food jar or something he tries to grab onto the spoon to help it come faster and do it himself. He wants to be independent and sometimes I forget that he isn't my tiny little Logan anymore.
I also realized that he is going to eventually crawl, but right now his thing is just to roll . . . and roll . . . and roll. He rolls all the way across the room and in circles to get what he wants. When he is sitting he will go onto his knees for a couple seconds, but then he goes onto his stomach and rolls to reach his final destination. He is clever, I have to give him that.
