How do you entertain your 1-3 month olds now ladies? What's your lo's favorite activity now?

Phoebe can't do one thing for too long or she gets really bored and therefore cranky. We do a mix of the little seat thing, the swing (although she weighs too much for it now and it wont swing well lol), tummy time, and back time with a dangling toy thing.

Her favorite activities with me are when I read to her - she'll just talk right along with me and interrupt - and just sitting staring at the lights, tv, computer monitor, whatever she can.

I feel so bad, she really just gets toted around while I am taking care of my toddler. She likes to be in the wrap carrier I made recently. At night, once Sawyer is asleep, I sit and talk to her or sing. She seems to like when I read to Sawyer.

Christian loves his play mat where the toys hang down for him, loves that. He will also sit in his exersaucer for 10-15 mins now too. But his fave thing is still anyone talking to him making him giggle.

He likes to just look at our faces and we talk to him and sing to him, try and get him to laugh (which he will on occasion). He's still not interested in toys much at all, he will look at them for a minute but doesn't try and grab them yet.

William loves his brother and sister. When I need to get something done, I put him in the bouncy seat and the kids talk, sing to him, pile toys on top of him, do peek a boo, patty cake.

William also loves eating his hands.

If he is changed, fed, rested he will watch me from the rock n play while I do something for a bit.

He loves singing, reading, his playmat- there's a mirror, so he stares at and talks to the baby in the mirror, looking at lights, watching me do stuff (although I usually sing so he'll be entertained longer), batting at toys, and sometime being in the swing. He gets bored pretty quickly though. Mack, sounds like Phoe and H are similar babies!

My Lily likes to either sit in our laps facing us and interacting, or she likes laying on the floor rolling and looking at stuff. She's on the older end of the group, though. She already grasping toys and such.

Ben loves diaper changes He laughs and chatters and we sing and make crazy noises back and forth like mental parrots. We sometimes play a volume game - increase the loudness 'til we are squealing, haha! It's fun stuff. Lately, since I change him on a bed usually, I bounce him and he laughs so hard! He is totally going to love his jumperoo when we can start using it!

Jr. is really enjoying his toys now although for maybe 30 mins at most. His Lion King play gym gets a lot of use as does his bouncer seat with his favorite Sassy Brand toy butterfly that hangs and dangles. He likes to pull on the dangling bell shaped parts that are bright colored with black and white polkadots. He grabs and pulls on his toys, talks to them. He also likes to just sit and babble with us.

He also REALLY enjoys being carried around. Sometimes if I sit down, even if I'm still holding him… he will start to cry until I stand and walk around. makes me tired! LoL.
