|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.

With my return to work this past week, my time with Mia has dwindled to a few hours in the morning, and a few hours at night. I get up at her first feeding, which is between 5AM and 7AM, and I leave for work by 8AM at the latest. I typically get home by 5:45PM. Sadly, I wish my commute could be better (the trip to work is fine, but coming home is hit or miss).

Mia was able to nap this afternoon, and Jenn was able to eat and get rest. Yesterday, Jenn visited the day care for a couple of hours to fill out paperwork, and to 'test drive' Mia with the kids. From her report, the visit went well.

Yesterday was the first day I went to work, leaving Mia at home with Jenn. When I got home, Mia still remembered me, by her wide smile. Jenn was a little out of sorts staying at home. I hope today is better, for both of them.
Jenn bought more toys from the Whoozit family (Hoopla by Andre). We now have a Baby Feelix, a Wigloo, and a Silly Spider.
For the past two nights, Mia has gotten up around 3AM. This is good. For those nights, we've put her to bed around 9:30PM. However, after nursing her, and rocking her, Mia seemed to refuse sleep. She would be drowsy (we can tell by her droopy eyes, and her yawning), but when we put her into the crib, she would fuss, and then ultimately start crying.

Today was my first father's day.
