At almost ten months of age, Mia is now starting to crawl! I know everyone is different in when they start crawling, talking, etc. There were signs she was working her way up to this. It is simply amazing to watch her scoot around. Now, it is time to baby proof everything! On to theContinue reading “Mia Crawls!”
Rabbit ears. Eggs. Money. It’s Mia’s first Easter. It was a quiet Easter, spent at the house with the grandparents. It was quiet by choice, as Mia was recovering from being sick all week. Otherwise, we would have made a trip to spend Easter with family. We had a lovely lunch – a Honey BakedContinue reading “Mia’s First Easter”
Bunny ears. A gift in Mia’s Easter basket from Grandma and Grandpa. She wore them yesterday and this morning, even though she isn’t feeling 100%. Hopefully, she’ll be hopping around with them on Easter Sunday. On a different note, Mia woke up at 2 am crying. It’s a bit unusual, but since she’s not feelingContinue reading “Mia and Her Bunny Ears”
We were able to get a lot done this weekend. We first started at the Mountain View Farmers’ Market, it was off to Milk Pail to get other fruits and veggies not found at the market. We finally ended the triple play day at Whole Foods. Mia has been enjoying all the new textures on each type ofContinue reading “Mia and Mommy at Whole Foods”
Mia loves listening to Dr. Seuss stories on the iPad. She started off with Dr. Seuss’s ABC. In this photo she is making her first pass at Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham, a bit of a long story for her to sit through. Oh, don’t worry, we don’t let the iPad do all theContinue reading “Mia and Dr. Seuss”
Mia was sitting in her high chair, waiting for her next spoonful of lovely baby food, when I took this photo. Doesn’t this picture make you want to pinch her chubby cheeks? This photo was taken on March 24, 2011, using a Canon 7D and the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8.
We are trying to encourage Mia to crawl. Part of how we’re doing this is by placing the desired item just outside her reach. In this case, we’re using my iPhone playing Maroon 5’s “Sunday Morning.” Over and over again, Mia kept trying to push herself off the far wall, inching oh-so-close to the iPhone.Continue reading “Mia Reaching”
Mia discovered our DIRECTV remote while sitting on our bed. She would stare at the remote, running her fingers through the numbers and other buttons, but not press on any of them. Then, of course, she would try to stick the remote in her mouth, because that’s what babies do. It’s always difficult to pryContinue reading “Mia and Her TiVo Remote”
It’s amazing how babies can be occupied by their own reflection. Farrah placed Mia in front of the hallway mirror. Mia was able to occupy herself for a good ten minutes. She laughed, clapped her hands, and leaned forward to touch her reflection.his photo was taken on March 5, 2011, using the Canon S95.
Two videos of the kids playing together, and later hugging. Awwww! and These videos were taken on February 19, 2011.
Yesterday, Mia turned eight months old! Wow, it’s amazing how time moves so quickly. She’s not crawling yet, but she successfully flopped onto her belly from this sitting position. We think she’s starting to teethe. There appears to be a little something in her front lower jaw. She seems OK with what is going on,Continue reading “Mia at Eight Months”
Lately, Mia has been able to sleep through the night. Unfortunately, she had a rough night sleeping last night. She woke up crying around 1:40am. This alone wouldn’t be so bad. But then she woke up crying twice more, once at 2:40-ish and then at 4:20-ish. Each time she wakes up you go through theContinue reading “Rough Night”
