Happy 1st Birthday Mia…

I can’t believe that Mia is now one year old. I really can’t say that if flew by with this one. I am basically a walking zombie. 😀 She just won’t sleep thru the night. Only twice she has done it. I guess when she finally does, it will much more sweeter.

But really, if that is the only thing I can complain about, I am blessed. She is such a wonderful little girl. She is walking, starting to talk more, starting to give kisses (sigh) and I am sure there will be more.

Loved by her parents and adored by her big brother, Diego. I am so happy she is in our life. *sigh*

Here is she is two days old doing her diva pose:

And here is her birthday pose:
My little one is ONE!

Her one year get well appointment is Nov. 27 so it will be a while before I put up her stats.

Happy birthday Mia! Love you lots.

She’s A Walking…

I have proof. Really. Look:

Mmmm, okay maybe not. How about now?

See told ya. She is getting better and better everyday. It’s probably been two weeks since she started to walk. She is at the point where she falls down and she stands up on her own and continues with her walk. So cute.

And this picture shows her four teeth:
look at me

Diego was there too. Here is one of him:

It was a beautiful day at the park. It was probably mid 60 when we were there. Not shabby for a day in early November.

Happy Halloween…

It was cold and windy.  No rain so it was fantastic.  We were invited to a Halloween party so that is where we started.  Well, Diego and I went ahead first.  Mia hadn’t taken a nap so Eric stayed at home with her.  It was a fun time.  We had food and the kids watched Ice Age.  At 5:30, we went trick or treating.  Well, Diego did.  Mia just stayed in the stroller.  I was sad because no one really saw her costume but I guarantee she looked cute.  Here are some pictures I did take:

This is Eric’s first carved pumpkin he ever did:
Happy Halloween!!!

I have to say, I was impressed.  Lots of sketches were done until this one was declared the winner.

And both of them together:
My Little Trick or Treaters!

Not the best pictures but this is the best I can do.  It is hard to have them look at the camera at the same time. 🙂

So Close…

Mia took three steps today. She has been taking a half a step for the past few weeks but never a full step until tonight. THREE.WHOLE.STEPS. So excited for her but another challenge for us. 😆 We were trying to get her to do it again but she got wise and would just drop on her tush and crawl. She is so close to walking. I have a feeling she may be walking by her birthday. 😯

Another teeth update: Her upper front tooth (the right one) finally cut thru her gum. I thought that day wasn’t going to get here soon enough. And I think there will be more coming because I feel her right one and you can see the whites for the other ones too. She may be getting all four upper teeth coming at once. Poor baby.

I am hoping once all those teeth cut thru, she will sleep better at night. We’ll see.*crossing fingers*

6th Month Appointment…

Gosh, she’s already 6 months old (and almost two weeks).

Her stats:

Weight 16lb 3 oz (60%)
Height 27 in (90%)  😯
Head 16 3/4 in (50%)

She got two shots and an oral. She did fantastic. No crying until the very end and I think because she couldn’t move since the nurse was holding her down.

She can now sit unassisted.  She can push up on her arms.  She really doesn’t roll over yet.  In fact, she just rolled from tummy to back last night.  And I think it was just a fluke.  lol  I am so not in a hurry for her to be mobile so it is on her terms when she wants to hit those milestones.  And as you know, she is eating cereals (rice and oatmeal), fruits (bananas, applesauce, peaches) and veggies (carrots, sweet potatoes, green beans).

Otherwise, she is doing what she needs to do and so are we. Next appointment: 3 months (Aug 22).

First Food…

We had noticed for some time now that every time one of us would eat, Mia would just stare at us. So we decided to give Mia some solids today. Some rice cereal with breast milk. OMG! It seemed that Mia was just waiting for this day to happen. She was able to eat about half of the cereal. The other half ended up on her face and bib. 😆

I can’t believe she is ready for this. 😯

Rolling Over…

Mia turned over!!! Granted it occured last night at 11 pm in our bed when she should have been sleeping in her crib but hey, she did it!!! A few times too. I think she just wanted to see how cute she is so we can forget it was 11 pm.

I have a feeling there will be more Mia milestones coming soon. Yay!

4th Month Appointment…

Let’s see. Mia is:

Weight: 14 lb 2 oz (70%)
Height: 25 3/4 in long (90-95%) 😯
Head Circ: 16 1/4 in (50%)

She got two shots and the oral rotavirus. AND:

Guess Who...

My baby got her ears pierced. She cried and cried and I was just a mess. But within 5 minutes (it felt longer) she was all smiley. I hope she doesn’t hate me later but it is kinda hard to make a decision like that for her. Especially with the reaction she had. But I think all will be forgiven. I know I don’t remember and I have no idea when I got mine done.

Overall, she is developing well and we go back in two months for her 6 month appointment.

Size 2…

That is what Mia is wearing in diaper size as of Friday. But the funny thing is that they are too big whereas the size 1’s are too small for her to wear. I guess she will grow into them, which I am sure that won’t be a problem.

Then later, I will be writing the same post but I’ll replacing the 1’s with 2’s and the 2’s with 3’s.

*sigh* How time flies very quickly.
