Picture of the Day

Happy Sunday, dear readers!

All throughout church today, the baby was quite lively. We had to sit in the kiddie ghetto upstairs because she was quite rambunctious as we entered the church and once we were safely ensconced up there with a number of families with children under age five, we could relax a bit and let her gab. I don't want to let her think its ok to make noise in church or run around with the other kiddos while Mass is going on, but the fact is babies and toddlers are physically incapable of sitting still and paying attention to something for more than a few minutes at a time when they're awake.

While she can stand up with assistance and has begun pulling herself up on us as well as the furniture, the baby still hasn't figured out walking. I do like to let her practice "walking" for short periods of time by holding onto her arms or holding her up under her armpits and encouraging her to put one foot in front of the other. Thank goodness we acquired a walker (and the baby jail seen in the photo) from a friend who was doing some therapeutic housecleaning so that my back can get a break from all the activity. In terms of real mobility, the baby can crawl, though its more of an Army crawl on the stomach than a proper crawl on all fours. The pediatrician was most pleased with her development at our last appointment, and I'm proud of how well she has surpassed her milestones too. As she becomes more mobile, I too can become more physically active. I hate exercise, but it's different when its in play as opposed to being in a gym.
