What kinds of activities are you doing to entertain your baby? Right now Lucy loves being on her play mat, she squeals away at the toys above her and the mirror. She also doesn't mind being in her chair if she has something fun to look at like the ceiling fan She also loves the bath, and bathing in the bath tub with her big sister is super exciting for her too.
I feel like they are pretty limited in activities at this stage... But what are you doing to entertain your LO?
I feel like Vivi has just gotten interested in toys and such. She sometimes will lie in her pack n play with one of those hanging bars with little toys on it other her head and bat at those. We also hang on the floor a bit and ill shake a toy near her with lots of colors and noise and textures and let her touch it and try to get her to follow it. We probably don't do tummy time enough (she hates it!)
Other than that it's long walks in the a.m for Mommas sanity and always music music music especially when she is cranky!
It's hard at this age because it doesn't seem like there is a lot to do with them, but one thing I've started doing for myself is exercising with her. I'll do like a plank over her and sing her a song or rest her on my thighs while doing crunches, stretch over my hips and lean over to attempt to tickle her toes and just do things to engage her while working me out. I figure work out when ya can how ya can!
Right now he's just started getting interested in his play mat but hasn't figured out how to hit the toys yet. He's also pretty content in his bouncy seat looking around and loves when mommy talks to him and will smile back almost immediatly and coo!
She loves her swing! We are doing the play mat and bouncy chair also. She enjoys bath time. She also loves the sound of mom's voice and big sister Hannah's. She likes it when I put my feet up on something and she can sit with her back resting on my legs looking at me. I sang the wheels on the bus to her to other day and got so many smiles. Love it!
Right now, the main activity that Baxter loves is feeding Or, nursing rather. I think if he could comfort nurse all day, he would!
He doesn't really love his swing or bouncy seat when he's awake, but will nap in both just fine. We have started working with him on his play/activity mat, and he is just starting to be entertained by the things that hang in front of him and rattle.
Lincoln isn't really doing too many activities yet. He is either eating, sleeping, being held, or crying. lol. He is JUST starting to coo at the little mobile on his swing, and once or twice per day he'll be in a good enough mood to smile and coo at me. He's still pretty cranky, I guess his tummy is still really bothering him
Most of the activities in do with my babies are actually just my daily activities, but with a baby strapped to me. I wish I could get Thomas on my back, like my others, but he arches his back too much for the me to feel like it's safe.
At nighttime, dh and I like to sit in bed with the baby and make silly faces so he will smile and coo at us. He likes tracking bright objects or batting at them, and he will stare for ages at the wedding photos on our bedroom wall.
