Rollin Rollin Rollin
Maybe it was the slight incline of our front yard, or maybe NOT! Mia rolled over, unassisted three times. It just so happens that she did it when we were having a little photo shoot. I yelled for daddy to come out and Mia performed for him too. I thought it would be awhile still because she never gets put on the floor. It seems like she is doing something fun and new every day.
A few weeks ago she learned her first word- "Mom." Now she is a little broken record. At least she can mix it up with a few variations. My favorite is the "Mum Mum Mum" sequence. Ellie's favorite is when she says, "momma." Daddy enjoys her speaking as well. Mia usually cries for "mom, mom, mom" when she is in distress- meaning Ellie is smothering her. However, when she is all the way upstairs in her crib and it's daddy's turn to give her the binki he likes to pull the, "but she's asking for you" garbage. He likes to ask Mia questions knowing the answer will be "moma", and a little to entertain the other kids too. "Who do you want to change your diaper?" "Who's gonna give daddy a back rub?" "Who loves daddy the most?" I of course don't let him get away with not changing her, but I get a good laugh with some of the stuff he comes up with.
She has been eating like a champ... well not throwing anything up as I increase her rate and volume. I have a suspicion that she may, just may make the growth chart this week. I could be wrong, but she is feeling quite a bit heavier than her last 14lb weigh in. I am still shooting for her to be tubeless by her 1st b-day.
