tummy time

today was our first successful tummy time!

according to wikipedia (a very reliable source) tummy time- is a colloquial (matt, try and say that 3 times fast....actually try saying it once) term used to encourage parents to ensure their babies spend time on their stomachs. Babies may benefit from spending time on their stomachs. It may help strengthen their posterier neck muscles and reach milestones like crawling faster.

mclain is not so fond of 'tummy time'. he prefers to be upright. being horizontal is one of his least favorite positions. these are just a few pictures of his preference.

he also has recently started cooing/talking...i LOVE it!
here are a few pics of tummy time along with a video :)
*thanks to tj, ellen, teddy & the weirdo that gift wrapped our activity gym.


please ignore my commentary
