Milestones in a nutshell

I just want to recall all her milestones that I can think of in this post instead of writing several separate posts.  Let's see...

  • 9 months: saying "da-da-da" indiscrminately
  • almost 9 months: fairly good with pincer grip, imitate waving "hi"
  • almost 8 months: saying first consonant sound "bap-bap-bap"
  • started to sit around 6 months but not steady until about 7.5 months
  • Crawling at 7.5 months (July 7th) 
  • 5.5 months 1st tooth! (lower incisor)
  • 4.5 months discovered her thumb while in Boston (her first plane trip!) and never looked back at her pacifier again...seeing braces in her future =\
  • Rolled over at 4 months and 1 week, just as her pediatrician predicted at her 4 month check up!
  • First day at Montessori Learning Institute Feb 11 with Ms. Le.  Avi and I handled it pretty well when she was dropped off but when I came to pick her up she was wailing sitting alone in her swing.  I didn't feel so great about that.  
Look! She had a double chin and hardly any hair!!
  • Had her first bottle at 3 weeks old and had no problems.  Little did we know, she decided she liked it straight from the source A LOT more.  Struggled with the bottle i.e. hours of tears and screaming every time until a couple of weeks into daycare when she realized she had no other choice.  Even then, she was unpredictable about whether or not she would take the bottle.  Hence, we were never able to have Daddy help with night feedings...lucky him!  Finally by 7 months, she started to love the bottle...reaching with eager eyes every time she sees it.  
  • Laugh out loud by 3 months
  • First professional photo shoot at 8 days old with Jayka Photography.  It took almost 4 hours including feeding and getting her into poses.  She was quite the fidgety one so it wasn't easy getting her into certain poses.  Did I mention it was also a nude photo shoot??  She managed to poop on our blanket during one of the poses.
