The Beginning of a Somersault

We practiced these tonight and I was surprised to see how she picked it up. It is not a perfect forward roll yet, but she is pleased with herself. I think if we do it more she will have it down pat, but this is only the second time we have even tried to do one. We began by practicing on the bed and then moved to the floor after she had the steps figured out. She has been very active lately, so I hope this gives her another outlet to burn off that excess energy.

Excellent somersaults...very very good for 21months!
Wait until she decides to do backward rolls off the side of the couch...oh joy!
