Roll, Ruby, Roll!

It's been a while since I've posted about Ruby's therapy. She is still rocking and rolling through one-on-one physical therapy once each week with the therapist from Babies Can't Wait, and we go to a group therapy at GiGi's Playhouse a few times each month. She has started to put lots of weight on her legs and feet through use of the exersaucer, and her favorite activity to do is to stand up when you're holding her. Ruby's core is crazy-strong; the therapist is always amazed at how she 'crunches' if/when she's on her back. And her head control is really improving constantly, especially with the increased amount of 'sitting' she's done in the bumbo in the last month.
Ruby has been rolling from her back to her stomach for a while now. She has always done better at that transition, rolling almost as soon as I put her down when I put her on her back. For a while it was almost like she got 'stuck' on her stomach, because she would fuss a little if she was on her stomach for too long sometimes. Just this week she started going back to her front-to-back motion though. The other night the kids and I watched her go back and forth no less than five times in the span of a few minutes. This girl is a rock star!
