|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.

I have been letting Mia climb up the last two or three steps to our second floor. With her mastery of crawling, she relishes the different motion of climbing. I have to be careful of course. We have a bunch of books along the stair case, so she gets too distracted to climb all the way up. I think this is good practice for her.

Mia seems to be able to wave "bye bye" now. She smiles when she does this.

Jenn says that she's spotted four more teeth starting to come out of Mia's gums. She also had to fish out a dust ball that Mia was gumming in her mouth for what seemed like most of the afternoon.

Mia's so quiet when she's sleeping. She does cry out every once in a while, but before I go to bed, I will often just watch her quietly, waiting for a tell-tale heavy breath, or the movement of her body as she breathes. I can get some satisfaction with the monitor.

Over the weekend, Mia had her first babysitter (someone we know from day care). It was disconcerting, leaving Mia at home while Jenn and I went out. Throughout our evening (a post-holiday party), Jenn was fretting about Mia. I was too, but mostly about mundane stuff (will the babysitter find everything she needs; will she figure out the television remote controls, etc.).
