|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.

Jenn was feeling sick today, so I had to take care of getting Mia to and from day care.
Relief! The heat wave in New England has broken (it's a relatively cool 74 degrees). Mia is sleeping in comfort. She endured a lot of heat the past few nights.

Despite the oppresive heat, Mia's been coping well. There is no air conditioner in her room, but I'm committing to getting one. For now, Mia sleeps with a big box fan blowing into her crib. Jenn removed the bunting around the crib bars, so the air can flow better.
Last night, Mia awoke at 3:15AM, and after Jenn nursed her, I rocked her to sleep. This took until 4AM.

Mia is now almost fifteen pounds.
Jenn fed Mia cereal tonight. It went fairly well. Though Mia was confused by the Jenn feeding her with a spoon initially, she did eventually grab it and try to shove it into her mouth, along with the corresponding cereal. Mia took about a good five swallows. The rest of it came out the sides of her mouth. A new adventure has begun!
Jenn took Mia to the doctor for Mia's vaccination and routine check up.

Jenn went to a play group this afternoon. She brought Mia to meet two other babies (and their moms, of course).

Mia seems to eating more. She finished eight ounces of formula yesterday; normally she drinks six ounces of formula per sitting. Jenn bought a package of baby cereal, and will discuss with our doctor whether Mia is ready to make the leap to 'solid food'.
