|Mia's First Year|
Jenn and I have a baby girl! Her name is Mia Magdalena Umali, and she was born Wednesday, March 28, 2001. This is our first baby. And this blog will be a daily record of my thoughts during her first year growing up with us.
This page only shows one week's entries. To see older entries, access the archives.
I also have plenty of pictures of Mia.
Rick's Ramblings BLOG is still being updated.

Once in a while, Jenn will put Mia next to her in our bed to nap. And when I look at them, as they're sleeping, I feel that it is one of the most beautiful sights there is. My little family.

In response to one of my rants on Mia's crying, Jenn said that all Mia can do right now to communicate is cry. And we're all that she has.

Jenn found a baby growth chart in one of our books. According to what she read, Mia is a little heavy. On the growth chart page that I read, it had a pointer to an American Dietetic Association article stating: "During the first 2 to 3 months of life, breast-fed infants typically gain weight more rapidly than the median on standard growth charts." So there.
The doctor's visit was straightforward. Mia was pronounced 'well'. She also received her Hepatitis B 2 shot. Ouch! Right in the thigh. The blue vaccination booklet now has two entries in it (one was from the shot she received in the hospital after she was born).

Mia weighed in at nine and a half pounds yesterday. Hurray! We are going to see the doctor tomorrow for a well-baby visit.
