My Life As I Know It Is Over!!!!!

The name origin and meaning of Cory

Name: Cory
Gender: (Male and Female)
Origin: Latin
Meaning: Cute

Our son Cory, who turned 7 months on April 6TH has been what they call a "late roller". This means that up until now he has not rolled while other kids have been rolling for months. I do not usually compare my kids with others. I believe in kids developing at their own pace. I don't look at charts (except when my kids are off them in height, those of you who know us, my hubby is 5'5" as I am and our kids are off the charts in height) But I knew that Cory should have been rolling by now. However, I knew there were several reasons to take into consideration in why he wasn't rolling.

Reason 1: Cory is huge.. He is just a very large child.. He is very tall (off the charts) and he is a chubber. He has a big old butt which makes it hard to wobble his body to roll.

Reason 2: He likes being on his stomach, so there is no reason to roll to his back.

Reason 3: He likes being on his back, so there is no reason to roll to his stomach.

Reason 4: He just didn't feel like it.

Well last week Cory decided he was going to roll from his back to his stomach. That is usually the hard one. WOOHOOO!!! We were very excited! He finally did it.

Now Cory is our last baby and I wanted to keep him little for as long as possible and enjoy it as much as I can. So I don't push him to reach milestones. He has reached many way before I wanted him to. He is a pretty easy going child, and I can put him somewhere leave the room and he will stay happy and content until I am done doing whatever it is I am doing. This is how it has been for the past 7 months.

Well yesterday I was going through some emails, blogs and such and he was on the floor playing, meanwhile I am watching him. I see him struggling, trying his very best to figure out how to roll from his stomach to his back. I watch him and he does it!!! Not 2 minutes later he was an expert and across the room by rolling.

Yay!!!! Way to go right???

Wrong... No.. no please no cheerful applause. My life as I know it is now over!!!! I know have to chase him around the house as he rolls across the room into trouble!!!! As he gets caught under the dining room table... as he gets stuck and can not roll anymore near the Aquarium.

What is even scarier is that knowing how once he wanted to roll from his stomach to back and watching him try so hard, and then accomplish it within minutes... and then seeing him this morning lifting his butt of the ground trying to figure out how to crawl... That is scarier.. I am scared..

What do I do now??? Put on my exercise shoes to chase him around, force him to cuddle with me as much as possible because before I know it, he is not going to want all the hugs and kisses!~ :-(

Yes, I will agree with you. It is all over. I know how you feel. Although my daughter most likely will not be our last, I still wanted to keep her as my baby for as long as I could but she had other plans. She was a chunkster also but too determined to grant me my wish. She wasn't a roller she was a "back scooter" and "army crawler". Suddenly there was no time for mommy to enjoy the little baby and relax. BooHoo!
