Our Little Muscle Man

We went and had some pictures of Charlie taken on Saturday and did some family pictures while we were at it (I'm sure they'll end up on Jenni's blog as soon as she gets some time). But after taking the "naked pictures", we joked that it looked like he had little muscles when I held his arms up, so I couldn't resist taking some pictures of the little guy showing off his stuff. It's also funny to see how the little guy is all belly, and he's definitely inherited my long arms and legs.

But the most exciting occurence has been that the little guy has already learned to roll over from his front to his back. I got home from work yesterday and Jenni said that she decided to give him a minute or two of tummy time to see how he'd do, and the little guy rolled over (with a small nudge from Jenni). She thought it was probably just a fluke and that her nudge made it possible. But then we gave it another try and he pulled it off, so we decided to bust out the camera and see if he could pull it off again and luckily he did. It wasn't quite as good as the first time, because he had his arm underneath him, but it was still pretty impressive. Here's the video, or you can check it out on Facebook.

We then tried to get him to do it a third time, but he just wasn't going for it. He did however pull off a push up near the end of the video. It probably doesn't sound like much, but you just have to remember that most kids his age are just working on picking their head up (or check it out on Facebook).

Unfortunately, "real life" (work, sleep deprivation, etc) has kicked in and made it a little tougher to post. I was hoping to get a post up tonight, but I just finished getting all of the pictures uploaded and I need to go to bed, so the post will have to wait til later.

You could also just check out the pictures on Facebook (first, second) or the Picasa Web Album, if you're getting anxious.
