What's Happening with Your Baby
Your baby has a whole new perspective of her world as she learns to stand and walk, holding your hand. Now is a good time to walk around your house at your baby's new eye level and look for hazards as you did when she was crawling.
Taking Care of Yourself
If you haven't already done so, take a critical look at the life insurance you have for you and your partner. No one wants to think of the possibility of a young parent dying but it is far wiser to be prepared, should the unthinkable occur. Would one of you be able to continue making house payments without your partner's salary? If you were at home full-time with your baby, would your partner be able to afford child care? Discuss these issues with your financial planner.
