Piper has really blossomed this past week.  She rolled from her back to her stomach, began turning around in circles and finally let me bathe her without a screaming tirade.  Every bit of progress makes her a happier baby.  I can tell Piper is very focused on long-term goals.  Her goal is to be able to sit independently.  Until then, she will not be satisfied in a car seat, in a bathtub, or in any reclined position.  I’m reading about the RIE philosophy of raising a baby with respect and with natural movements — without walkers and swings and any sort of artificial aids.  I like that Magda Gerber admits in the first chapter that you should only take away what works for you because every baby/person IS different.

Anyhow, Piper is happier with every day of freedom from stagnation.  It’s obvious that her freedom makes her happy.  Here are some pics of her just being her happy free self:

. . . .and here is the Pilps trying to get some much needed attention.

First “solid” food!

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

Pip devoured her first “solid” meal, which consisted of rice cereal mixed with breast milk.  She absolutely loved it.  I only wish I had better pictures!  The closeups of her enjoying her meal are all blurry :(.

Piper is also enjoying the old playstation, which is good because Daddy likes it too!

After the meal, the little thumbsucker enjoyed a good nap.  Who doesn’t like a nap after a big lunch?  I know I do!

Big Sis Loves Pip

Big sister Sophie T. loves her some Pipster!  This pic is Daddy’s new computer wallpaper.
