So, big things this week for the little one! After doing a lot of reading about the benefits of baby sign language, we will be starting with Izzy this week. Slowly, of course, because I myself have to learn and remember to do the signs with her, so that she can learn, and eventually start doing the signs herself! We’ll be using Baby Signs, and starting out the the signs for “hungry” “diaper” and “STOP” lol.
The sign for “STOP” is important right now, because in the 2 or 3 days its been since she took those first few little “practice” steps, she has already progressed to doing this:
She also wont stay out of the kitchen, which is not ok, at least while im cooking. Normally, I put her in her play yard or exersaucer, so she’ll stay put, but has such a fit about being “jailed” that I can’t even concentrate on cooking! It’s time to go an and get the baby gate, that way she’ll be “free” but still out of a potential danger area. The gate, outlet blockers, cabinet locks, and the thing that keeps the toilet seat down are probably the only things we’ll do as far as baby proofing.
My wedding is being featured today over at Chronicles of Future Wife, so please go and check it out!
Also, today at TMSG, we are talking about the “ideal” amount of space between children, so go check that out too! Happy Wednesday!
