A Week of Firsts
*edited to add: I forgot to mention, e-baby sat unassisted for the first time this week, too! And not even that tripod-thing, a proper upright sit! She gets tired pretty quickly, but she can do it on her own. That means she can ride in a backpack or bike trailer. It's like a whole new world of opportunity.
First 5K: Wednesday I jogged to work for the first time since e-baby was born. She rode in her red 3-wheeled convertible and we had a blast. It was so much fun we did it again on Friday.
First Kiss: E-baby has started soothing herself by making kissy-noises. These aren't the sloppy, open-mouthed smooches I told you about a few weeks ago. No, this is something she does all alone: first, she goes bbbbbbh(making a lot of bubbles) and then she sucks her lips in and *smack! * I think that since SNG and I are always kiss-kiss-kissing her, she associates the sound with warm-fuzzy feelings.
First mouthed consonant sound: MAMA!!! Mamamamamamama. Sometimes she just mouths it silently, and sometimes she says MAMAMAMAMAMAMAMA.
First top-of-the-class honor: One of her teachers told me she's the most affectionate baby in class. OK, there are only 4 babies, but I took it as a good sign.

I can't wait to meet e-baby! It sounds like she is just doing so much. I wonder how we're going to be able to keep up with all of the changes. Good thing you are keeping up with the videos and photos, that way you'll have plenty of proof later on that she was a little angel!
