|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.

Before I forget to write these down for posterity:

Tonight, Jenn and I watched Mia drink from her sippy cup. We're not sure if all the liquid (half water, half baby juice) is getting down her throat, but she's getting a better hang of it.

This morning, Jenn had take her car to service, and so we formed a convoy to the edge of Arlington. Mia rode in my car for the first time in her and my life. On the way home, Jenn sat with her in the back seat.
We gave Mia a bath tonight. We're still not bathing her every evening. She's quite active in the little tub now. She'll splash water. She'll reach for the rinse hose. She'll squirm. Jenn said we'll be bathing her in the tub soon enough.
Jenn said she 'felt teeth' today in Mia's lower mouth. I'll just wait to see it, myself.

I posted eleven more photos (94-104) on the picture site. I especially delight in picture 100, Mia taking a dunk of water.
Lisa, Jenn's cousin and Mia's godmother, paid us a visit with her husband Roy on Sunday. The last time they saw Mia was late June. It was funny watching Mia interact with new people. I remember someone saying to me that Mia should see new faces as often as she could: faces fascinate babies.
