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.
