Third & Fourth Month of Mamahood (+ baby rolling over!)

More things I am learning about mamahood...

: That I should have tested out my frozen stash on Anna sooner. (Note: I recently found out that my baby doesn't care for old frozen milk so I had to toss away milk bags that were more than 2 months old. So instead of milk being good for 3-6 months according to the health guideline, Anna won't eat anything that is more than a month old. Girl has got a sophisticated palate.)
: That hubs and I mull over spending $10, but we bought this toy for our baby without batting an eye.
: That re-visiting old places are not at all boring with Anna around.
: That I would consider not going on the cruise because I can't imagine leaving Anna for a week. (...but we are going - paid the balance last night...)
: That my off-tune singing makes Anna laugh and I do it over and over again just to hear it.
: That I have the utmost appreciation for a 9-hour uninterrupted sleep.
: That I can train my dogs not to bark.
: That I would feel sad the day we switched to size 2 diapers and level 2 nipples.
: That mamahood is so exhausting, but very rewarding! Yes, heard it many times, but it's so true.

Video: Anna has been trying to roll over (back to front) for a week now, but her arm gets in the way so we help her with a gentle nudge. Today (7 days away from turning 4 months old), Anna rolled over completely on her own. She did it twice before I finally grabbed the video camera. I love her little cute grunts and her persistence and the last few seconds when she pulled her arm out. She makes her Mama proud. Go Anna!


  1. Oh my gosh, what a cute video! I feel like my son is behind, but I have to remind myself that all babies are different. (So interesting about the milk. I'm a little nervous about our freezer stash now!)

  2. She'll be walking soon.. and then an American Idol judge... you keep practicing that singing OK? :)

  3. Well done, Anna! =)
    And she likes her new toy! At least money well spent there! :)

  5. So adorable. Congratulations little Anna on your BIG achievement!

  6. Yes, little moments like these make all the crap in the world melt away...
