In just the past week Jane’s learned how to squeal, screech, put her foot in her mouth, and prop herself up on her arms:
I’m just writing it down because I’m sure in the future I’ll forget how excited we were about all these little developments. I’m also sort of obsessed right now with her baby thighs, I absolutely love them, it’s like kneading the most perfect smooth silky fat dough between your fingers.
This past weekend we also switched from the bassinet which she outgrew ummm, a few weeks ago, to the crib. I’d peek into our room when I heard her wake up and see little feet sticking over the side:
But so far the crib sucks. Three out of four times we put her in there, she squirmed all over and got her legs stuck between the bars. So I’ve heard we should get bumpers, but I’ve also heard they can be ineffective and even dangerous.
I also miss the retractable roof thing on the bassinet, because we could put it up and still watch tv in our room. (She’s still in our room with the crib, her room is on the other side of the house, and I’m not getting up and moving around anymore than I have to when I feed her at 5 a.m.)
So, any advice? Bumpers or no? Alternate sleeping contraptions?
