I cannot wait to see the look on her face when she feels grass on her feet for the first time!

Just a warning: this post is probably going to be horribly boring unless you’re a first-time parent of a 3- to 6-month-old.

I know, I know.  I’m already becoming one of those parents–the kind that I’m sure will drive me a little crazy if I’m lucky enough to one day be a pediatrician.  But when I’m on Facebook, I swear I see a ton of updates saying something like, “Holy S—!  My kid is only three months old and already rolling over!  And he has all his adult teeth and is eating a steak!  And he’s reading Joyce!”  So when we hit the 5-month mark without any sign of rolling over, I had to suppress the differential diagnosis that started spinning in the back of my head.

It’s times like these when a baby monitor with infrared night vision (a wonderful gift from my Doctoring group–thank you!!) is a truly brilliant thing:
