Mia – 5 months

For her 5 month birthday today Mia rolled over. She had been really close for a few weeks now but this evening as she was playing on her mat she rolled over for the first time. I called daddy over and she did it again. And then I had her do it again so we could take a video (see below). Then she started crying saying her parents were exploiting her talents. 🙂

Mia has also started solids. She isn’t the biggest fan of baby food unless it is something really good, like peaches, but she loves getting small bites of whatever the rest of us are eating. She is still a good night sleeper, although she occasionally wakes up to talk to the birds at 4:30 or 5 in the morning but usually goes back to sleep. Naps are still a work in progress. Mommy has had a couple fun afternoons when neither Mia or Abby has napped even though they both need it.

Farmer Ella


Ella had been learning about farms in school. Today was “dress like a farmer day” using stuff you could find around the house. I think daddy’s John Deere hay is a nice touch. If nothing else it got her to wear the jeans she told daddy she wanted and has only worn once since he bought them for her.
