She's Really Quite Advanced, You Know :)

Today I decided to give Chloe some tests. Our What to Expect the First Year book has a list at the beginning of each chapter that lists what your baby should, probably, and may possibly even be able to do each month. Here are some things that Chloe can now do:
  • Poop. She's made great strides in this area of late.
  • Focus on a face.
  • Respond to a bell by quieting.
  • Cry. A lot. She's also made great strides in this area recently.
  • Hold head (fairly) steady when upright.
  • Lift head 45 degrees when on her stomach.
  • Roll over from front to back.

Wait, what??? Roll over??? See below...

The events of today were as follows... Mama had to go to the toilet, so she laid baby down on her supercute Miffy playmat. Sadly, baby doesn't like the Miffy playmat nearly as much as Mama does, mostly because if she's on the playmat it means that nobody's holding her. :) Anyway, I noticed she was holding her head up as I walked off and decided that was worth a photo. When I returned a few short minutes later, she was teetering on her side, and shortly thereafter wound up on her back. It's amazing what a tantrum can accomplish!

She's a regular acrobat. It also looks like she is issuing parenting instructions. Play close attention, she has her own list: 'What can I make Mom and Dad do in my first month?'

Wow! Rolling?!

During Zora's first month, Luge asked every phone call, "Can she read yet?"

(He also introduced her to the entire library staff as "the miracle baby" the first time she visited.)

It's truly amazing what they can do and how engrossing poop, drool, screaming, etc. become!

Yeah, she is pretty bossy. Takes after her mom. (And her dad?) :)

So Erica - can she read yet?

Happy B-day Chloe!

Wow - rolling over... Samara still hardly does that... and she's almost 6 months old!! Probably b/c we were never strict w/ tummy time... She's sutting on my lap right now looking at pics of her little friend, Chloe... No we're going to check to see if there are any new pics of Zora!!

Love, Heidi and Samara

We were impressed, too... but somehow don't think it' going to become a habit just yet!
