We all settled and felt better. Mom gave the baby a big kiss. Then she put an enticing toy next to baby and practiced the little move of tucking Baby's arm when she saw Baby trying to roll to the toy. These little helping moves only need to be done once or twice a day over a few days - then Baby's brain and body takes it from there.
After Baby played with the toy and was resting in Mom's arms I asked Mom how she was feeling. She said, 'I like that "first, connect." 'It seems to me I could apply that to everything, like diaper change, snack, getting dressed - wow - everything!'
This was quite an insight from a little rolling lesson. Thank you for the sweet reminder.
