updates and milestones

Posted by lena on August 20th, 2008 filed in baby news

wow, its been a long time since my last post. i’ve got a sleeping baby pinning down my right arm, so please forgive the shortness of this post as well as the lack of capitals.

updates: ilya is amazing…ok, i guess this is nothing new, but i wanted to throw that out there. we have joined two parent groups so that she will have lots of friends and mommy will get lots of support. we have gone to the zoo several times and we visit daddy once a week at work. ilya has finally decided that the car seat is not such a bad thing and will even allow herself to be pushed in the stroller once and a while.

milestones: ilya can now grab and play with toys (aka shove them in her mouth). She consistently rolls half way over and has rolled all the way over once or twice. she laughs all the time and talks to anyone that will listen to her.

that’s it for now, as typing with one hand is exhausting.

    How interesting that Ilya just barely wants to go out in the stroller! Ciprian was going out for walks in the stroller from week two or so, and by now it’s his favorite thing. If he doesn’t go out at least once a week, he gets fussy and cranky. Taking him outside is also the surest way to get him to go to sleep.

    I meant he goes out once a day. Sometimes for several hours.

    Ilya loves her walks. We go everyday, but she usually only wants to go if we carry her in a sling – so stroller time is a huge improvement (especially for my back!).
