I'm just wondering what everyone does with their babies during the day, if you're at home with them. My baby hardly naps at all, so I'm trying to "engage" her for the majority of the day.

She really hasn't reached the stage where she's playing with toys at all. I shake them in front of her or dangle them above her, and she likes looking at them, but doesn't really reach for anything. We do tummy time after every diaper change, and I try to take her out most days because she loves looking around, but it's hard in Texas where it's basically too hot for walks when she's up. I take her to the kids pool and the children's section of our public library, but I feel like everyone looks at me like I'm crazy for having a 2 1/2 month old out at these "children's" places.

I'm spending hours a day with her on my lap facing me while I talk to her and make faces at her. I try singing and reading to her, but she seems more interested in just watching my face move.

Any ideas?
