Tight Squeeze

May 13th, 2010 by Mommy

Julia saw a toy that she wanted and somehow got into a pickle in her attempt to retrieve it. This is pretty much how I found her. I moved the furniture a little so she could back out on her own, but she wouldn’t come without the toy and it was stuck. Never fear, I saved the toy and the little girl.

Who’s the baby?

April 15th, 2010 by Mommy

I’m not sure who the baby is in our house, but I know who the silly girl is! Before I went for my camera, Julia was attempting to push the pram.

We put the kick-piano toy into Julia’s cradle for her to play with. Luckily, it has a off switch, or else we wouldn’t use it. She likes to kick her feet out of her blanket and that transitions to this toy well. So far she seems to like the toy and the music it plays to her. We have noticed that as Julia’s toys have gotten cooler, Emily has taken an interest in them. We are finding that Emily has begun stealing Julia’s toys more and more. The toys that are fastened to objects like the car seat are safe, but everything else, including the pacifier, has been stolen. When Julia is in her cradle and kicking the piano, Emily is just beside herself to try to push the buttons too. For as much as Emily steals Julia’s toys, she also likes to bring toys to Julia. Julia can end up with a rather full lap of toys because of Emily’s sharing.

My First Toy

March 17th, 2007 by Mommy

Emily has discovered her first toy. In pity one night for both her sake and the sake of her parents we introduced the ‘pacifier’ to Emily. The pacifier worked brilliantly to bring instant relief to a very agitated baby. Since then we have used the pacifier to satisfy fussiness and to ease her into the sleeping world.

One day we discovered that she had spit the pacifier out of her mouth and it landed on her chest just in front of her mouth. With the top lip and tongue she sucked the pacifier back into her mouth. Sometimes she is satisfied with just licking it, but if in the attempt to get it in her mouth she knocks it away she demands assistance to get her toy back. We can spend hours sitting next to her with her playing this game. Mommy is hoping that one day Emily will play this game when we have a video camera around!
