How did I not know there was a thread going on? Good grief, I feel so out of it!
It's nice to catch up with everyone and see how all of the babies are doing!
Blake is another one that isn't so much into tummy time or toys (three babies, and not one of them ever liked that baby gym thing that they lay under and swat at the hangy toys...think I get the hint now!), but he LOVES to be sitting up and checking things out. I broke down and bought him a Bumbo, because the only other thing that was working was big sister's stroller that is meant for baby dolls, and then she got the bright idea to take him for a stroll around the house when I went to do the laundry, and, well, it's just easier to move him from my lap to the Bumbo seat if I need my hands free for a few minutes. (Nothing happened to him during their little walk, and she even put a "helmet" on him, in the form of a plastic bowl.) He now hates the sling, but loves being up in the Ergo, I guess because there's more to see!
And the kid is constantly covered in drool. Oy with the drool.
We are getting to the point where we have a loose sort of routine going on with the naps and whatnot, which is nice. I love this part when they get settled into the routine of wake up, nurse, hang out for an hour, nap, etc. I don't understand why the Babywise people feel the need to put their kids on a schedule...mine always worked themselves out on their own.
The other day, I sang "I love you more today than yesterday" to him, because it just randomly came on the radio, and it has now become his favorite song. The first few notes come on, and the kid is grinning from ear to ear.
And now I'm subbing to this thread so I can stick around with everyone!
