1. I’m totally baby’s favorite. Maci laughs and smiles when I come into the room and cries when I leave. It breaks my heart, but it also makes me feel like the most important person in the world!
2. Baby rolled from tummy to back for the first time! I’m not sure who’s more excited about this — me or baby. Maci won’t stop practicing this new trick!
3. I never, ever leave baby on a bed, changing table, or any other high surface. Now that Maci is rolling, it’s even more important that I always follow this safety rule.

4. I think it’s time for another date night. I’ll try to find a babysitter this week so my partner and I can go out for a little while, even if it’s just for a quick coffee.
5. If I don’t already have a nasal aspirator, I’ll get one this week. Baby’s first cold is probably coming soon, if Maci hasn’t had one already!
6. My partner and I are making time for sex again, but things are a little different these days. If I’m breastfeeding, it’s totally normal to leak milk in the middle of an intimate moment. I know this is nothing to be embarrassed about (and my partner might even get a kick out of it)!
7. I talked to my pediatrician about when baby should start solids. I also asked about good choices for baby’s first foods. I’m looking forward to this new culinary adventure!
1. Baby used to love meeting new people, but now Maci is scared of strangers. I don’t force Maci to go to unfamiliar people, and if I need a new sitter, I spend some time letting baby get comfortable with the new person while I’m still around.
2. Baby loves to use Maci’s fingers. Maci reaches for and grasps toys — and also my clothes and jewelry.
3. If I didn’t already have one, I got baby a play gym. Maci loves playing on the floor and reaching for all the interesting dangling toys!

4. When we get a new toy, I show it to baby so we can explore it together. I show Maci the buttons to push and levers to pull to make things happen. Maci likes watching me play with the toys, but Maci loves playing with them herself even more.
5. I’m getting better sleep these days, but I’m still exhausted. I’m starting a vitamin B supplement to help my energy levels, and I make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
6. Baby’s toys are taking up more space. I got some baskets and shelves to organize our new collection!
7. I’ve started babyproofing! I covered all electrical outlets and made sure any tall furniture is fastened to the wall. I also moved any cleaners or poisonous materials to high, locked cabinets.
