Good things come in threes!!

Last Friday night we gave her cereal for the first time! Exactly one year after we found out we were pregnant we gave her cereal.   It seems fun, but I have been bizarrely emotional about it… just not been ready to admit that she is big enough to need more than I can give her.   But her sleeping has been really off lately and she has been waking up earlier and earlier and then had a few days when she got up every 3 hours all night to eat.  For a baby that has been sleeping through the night since 8 weeks old…  I did not do well with this sudden lack of sleep again.   So I denied that maybe cereal was the answer for more than a few days.   And then I was ready.    Steve was home so we made it a whole event.  We started with some crazy family self portraits.  She looks into it, don’t you think?

Then we went for it, taking turns feeding her and watching her kick her legs with excitement.  

The very next morning she rolled over.  Since Steve was at the Market I had the video on her for a verrrrrrrry long time.  She was so close to rolling for so long…  so I was determined to catch her first flip to show her Dad.   I have a ridiculous amount of footage that resembles the first few 1/2 of this video.   So.. as you’ll hear….  I was AS surprised as she was when she finally rolled.  Love.

Finally, the weekend ended with a Sunday Family Day at Pat’s house where Tessie met her NewYork relatives, Mary, Selam and Yohannes.
