What is your baby's favorite way to get around (rolling/crawling/scooting/creeping)? she likes to crawl all over the house getting into everything, she also cruises the furniture trying to get things, and walks between couch and coffee table, etc
What kinds of baby proofing have you done? NONE..lol I didn't really baby proof with Aidan either, the only thing I do is make sure none of Aidan's toys or anything little she can choke on are on the floor..I don't have locks on the cabinets, and she doesn't have any interest in them, no stairs so i don't have to worry about that.
Does your baby follow you around the house? YES. for the most part she follows me no matter where I go..especially when I come home from work..
What's a normal day like for you and how do you take time for yourself? We get up in the morning, feed her a bottle than breakfast, play a little and than it's down for her first nap, that's where i can usually get some time to myself or Aidan and I do something, than she gets up, we either play or her and Aidan play, than lunch, bottle, and i go to work afterwards..i normally don't get time for myself until after they are in bed.
What is your baby's favorite way to get around (rolling/crawling/scooting/creeping)? She is loving cruising everything (including the walls), although she is choosing to walk more and more each day.
What kinds of baby proofing have you done? Not much... she loves getting into cabinets, so mostly I have moved things that are dangerous to the pantry or to the high cupboards. We don't have a baby gate yet, and she loves climbing the stairs (she can make it all the way to the top!), so I keep her in my sight all day. We did put in the outlet covers because she is extremely interested in outlets and cords.
Does your baby follow you around the house? She pretty much will, although she will sometimes make a mad dash to do something she knows she isn't allowed to do (dumping the bathroom garbage, climbing the stairs, climbing on the TV stand).
What's a normal day like for you and how do you take time for yourself? Mostly I take time for myself when she's in bed for the day. On work days, we both go to work and I nanny, so those days are go go go. When I'm home with her we are more lazy, but with all the playing and feedings and trying to keep the house a little in order, it's still pretty busy.
