Entertaining Baby

works for me wednesday at we are that family

Our little guy is not so little and not so easy to hold these days. He is also not mobile YET. I know that he will be soon enough so I do not wish to rush things. He can navigate a small area enough to sweep the floor with his belly and put bits and pieces of dirt, trash and/or other things only a baby can find on your floor. So - it is a challenge to get things done when we are alone. He does not like for me to leave the room EVER. He will play fine as long as I'm sitting nearby. The head banging to the floor begins as soon as he realizes he's been left behind. I often set him in his bed or the play yard but I hate for him to think of those as punishments since they are for sleeping. So - I have had to come up with creative ways to get things done. And I mean the smallest of things. For now he thinks it's a pretty fun game. We'll see how long it lasts. And I do realize that this is certainly not new for most of you moms.

He loves loves loves to take a bath - so this will not always work since he was super happy thinking he was about to take a bath....

But I sure do think he's the cutest thing in the world sitting in baskets and tubs and it sure works for me! At least for now.
