|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.

Tonight, we put Mia to bed around 7:20PM. I only rocked her for five minutes, and then Jenn and I put her into her crib while she was mostly awake. After we shut the lights, she wailed for two minutes, then promptly fell to sleep. (She was fairly exhausted, but this session is a positive sign.)

Mia is six months old today. I took some pictures (77-80). Jenn asked why I didn't bring home any cake. No good excuses came to mind.

Mia will be six months old this Friday (9/28). What a milestone.
Tonight, instead of waiting for Mia to get to sleep, Jenn put her into a bed slightly fussy. I had rocked with Mia for almost twenty minutes, but she didn't fall asleep. Mia softly fussed, then went to bed before 8PM.

Jenn let Mia go to sleep on her again today. She called me at work to report that Mia went to bed on her own, with minimal crying. I don't know if this is going to last, but things look encouraging if Mia is learning this. On the flip side, I did have to rock her for twenty minutes before she went to bed tonight (7:40PM).

Tonight, we fed Mia some 'meat': chicken (stage 2 from Gerber). Jenn and I did not agree with the odor (it was 'off'), but Mia seemed to take to it somewhat.
"She did a big thing just now."
We're starting to see if Mia will drink from a sippy cup. The spill-proof design is a marvel. I tried to empty it out to wash it, but I forgot to ask Jenn how to detach the lid.
