I didn't think it would happen, but it has. I absolutely am one of those parents that believe my child is a genius and she's only a month and two days old....and it's not just me that believes, it was confirmed the other day in the Pediatricians' office. Not only is she smiling at me, just because she is happy, not because she has gas, but she's also tracking the dangly things we hang over head that have black and white spots on them. AND to top it off, she rolled over in the Docs office when we went in for her check up. While the doctor was showing us how to do tummy time, Ruby went from her stomach to her back. My friend said, "it's because she's being raised by dogs, that she can roll over so fast". Very funny. Yes, that's it. That and she's a GENIUS. Her doctor actually was surprised and a little taken aback because Ruby almost rolled onto her stethoscope and then right off the table. She warned us that since we have a very strong girl on our hands and "advanced" :) to not leave her on a surface unattended. No more running to get that thing I left in the other room for five seconds, or run and pee because I can't hold it, and have peed on my leg, since childbirth, or turning my back on her for one second. Just as I was getting comfortable putting her down at all, now it's all about her flinging herself off the bed etc. Not that she's rolled over since, but okay, okay I get it. All that time she was in my womb I would talk to her and tell her that she is smart. She is strong. She is healthy. It's amazing. I guess she actually listened.
