Loving hearing everyone's check-ins! Hey, I have a question for ya'll...
QUESTION about toys in cribs...
Do you/did you when your LO's were still in cribs leave toys in the crib for them to play with when they wake up or are putting themselves to sleep? I feel like this is a stupid question but lately I've been putting a toy or two (making sure it's a really safe one to play with without supervision) in their cribs with them and when they wake up from naps or in the morning I can often hear them through the monitors playing with the toys and babbling... it usually gives us an extra 10-15 minutes before we have to go get them which is helpful. I can't really see any reason not to have the toys in there, but I was just thinking how I didn't really know baby protocol on this subject and wondered what others have done/thought.
32 posts already?? It's the 2nd, and I'm already behind! LOL!
SO's Name: Kyle
Baby's/childrens name(s): Evan
How old is/are the LOs: 16.5 months
Any new milestones or fun stories: He's walking a lot more and loves to say "moo" for EVERYTHING! Oh, and he can do (peg) puzzles! It's pretty cool - he has figured out two in the last couple of days. One with 5 pieces and another with 9.
Words that you find saying most often to your LO(s): No!
Favorite part of March: My birthday, that I get to go to a conference (which means a hotel room to myself!)
What’s your favorite indoor and outdoor activity?: At the moment...Indoor: reading, playing with Evan's toys like blocks and puzzles. Outdoor: going for walks.
It's funny reading the responses to the "words that you find saying most often" question - seems like we're all in the same boat!
Also, I'm so jealous of the overnight thing! DH and I have been away from the house/family separately, but never together. It's tough because we have no family in town and getting a babysitter for overnight is really expensive at $10/hour.
Andi - I think it's completely fine to have toys in their crib now that they can move and sit up reliably.
Name: Jessica & Mike
Baby's/childrens name(s): Gabriella (Gabby) 18.5 months
Any new milestones or fun stories: She is learning her animal sounds - maeow for cat, moo for cow, a raspberry for an elephant and she knows them when you ask her. She is also starting to give us signs she is ready for potty training. She even put her pants on today and with a little help (very little actually) she got them up over her butt
Words that you find saying most often to your LO(s): lately it's been "use your listening ears" and "Your walking feet". They do that at daycare, so I have been starting it and it seems to be helping.
Favorite part of March: Not really a march fan....but for this March I am hoping our house will be done :)
What’s your favorite indoor and outdoor activity?: For me I LOVE reading and I love golfing or kayaking. For something with Gabby, we LOVE to play blocks and play on the swings outside.
Overnight discussion- Congrats to the ladies who are getting their first!
