Diego has his first cold. Not the kind of "1st" that you really celebrate or look forward to. It isn't as bad as I expected - so far at least. I am hoping it won't get worse. He is sleeping well and nursing well and well, pooping.

All is well.

teddy bear

Diego is into this teddy bear. It is really soft and he likes to suck on his ears and paws. It also has a rattle inside so that just adds to the appeal.

raspberries and spit bubbles

Diego has taken up an interest in blowing raspberries and along with that comes a lot of spit bubbles. Pretty cute but he'll get you with flying spit if you aren't careful. I have never not minded being spit on before now!

push ups

Diego has been pushing up on his hands now instead of just his elbows. That is so exciting because before he just wasn't strong enough to lift himself like that... or it didn't occur to him to try it, I can't be sure. But now he pushes himself a full arm's length off the floor. He can rotate himself around like the hands of a clock and is now never in the same place that I left him.

diego is getting mobile

Today, I put Diego down for tummy time and he rolled over right away. Then after awhile he rolled over onto his stomach again. After another awhile he rolled onto his back again! Pretty soon he's gonna be rolling across the room.

It's touchy because I have to leave him alone long enough to motivate him to get moving but if he isn't in the right mood he'll throw a fit. It is scary for me when he screams and thrashes around like that so I have to find the right time of day to let him get motivated. Usually, the best time is first thing in the morning.
