And not in a bad way!
First, I’ve got a guest post, “What I’d Wear Wednesday: Blue” over at Growing a Life. Check it out, and check out the WIWW archives for more great columns. Also, if you’re expecting or know someone who is (like Damselfly herself!), point them towards her Bustin’ Out Babies list.
Second, I took out Maia’s playsilks for the first time yesterday. Here she is enjoying the blue one:
Maia gets pissed when she has the hiccups…. (this vid is better with sound turned up, the mic on the camera was a bit far from her).
Maia is almost always the most wonderful baby in the mornings. She is responsive and loving, super aware of everything around her, and although I’m definitely not a morning person, she makes it worth waking up every day. Here is a little video of her daddy taking advantage of her good mood:
Every day, we give Maia a bit of tummy time on the floor. She’s not particularly fond of it and we usually scoop her up within three minutes of setting her down (as opposed to the twenty she’ll happily spend in the swing or her bouncer chair, and the seemingly infinite hours she enjoys in my arms), but today she was enjoying herself and I took the opportunity to take some video (40 seconds long):
You can see here that she’s lifting her head a bit, responding (somewhat) to my voice, tucking her knees under herself, and sort of making herself move. I’m so impressed!
