Head's up

We were beginning to worry about Alden's lift-the-head-up milestone. I guess it's something babies are supposed to do around 2 1/2 months, but every time we put Alden on his stomach he fusses and cries. We started using a baby-boppy as part of his training, and it made things a little easier. Little by little he became more comfortable on his stomach. Yesterday he was acctually smiling and lifting his head. Hurray.

Ronin hates being put on her tummy too. We basically just totally ignore it now and hope she gets her head practice in other ways (she spends a lot of time outward-facing in the baby carrier, for instance).
