Today’s a Big Day!

Apparently, today’s the day when lots of things happen. Or so, Lily has decided.

  • She slept 12 hours last night, straight through. One “binky emergency” at 11p, but that was it. It turned out that it wasn’t her teething that was waking her up numerous times — it was the darn, noisy humidifier we had on! I turned it off for last night since she’s no longer sick, just to see what would happen. It makes sense, though, because while it was on for the past two weeks or so, every time we carry her near her bedroom, she starts freaking out, and when we lay her down in her crib for naps or sleep time, she freaks out and cries for us when we close the door behind us. It has made sleeping very difficult. I think she’s actually afraid of the loud noise that it makes, and she’s a very light sleeper, so it wakes her up during the night pretty often.
  • She said her first word today… it seemed to have been on purpose, but who knows? She’s only 6 months old, after all. She stared straight at me, and said, “Ma!” It seemed purposeful, and I’m gonna take it as such because darn it, I believe my baby is a genius. :)
  • While on her tummy, she got onto her hands and KNEES and started pushing off on Daddy’s hands… and made a crawling movement for the FIRST time! She moved forward!!
  • She got her 6-month vacs today, and all was well. She was a trooper. Didn’t even cry at the first shot — didn’t even notice it. Second shot, she yelped for about two seconds and then stopped.
  • We started the first round of Your Baby Can Read. She LOVES looking at the words and the babies doing stuff on the screen. We’ll see if we can get this little baby reading by a year old!

Apparently, today’s a good day for firsts! I missed the crawling thing, since I was at work (grrr), but I was right here for the Ma and the sleep! Yahoo!!

Good luck with YBCR – it makes great entertainment for babies either way :)
