  • The only thing I know to tell you is my boys both loved t when I got down there with them and played. It sounds like your doing pretty good so I wouldn't stress it. When she gets a little older you will find a million things to do.

  • It sounds like you're doing great!! Does she get enough tummy time? Also, be sure to let her play when you're nearby and she's safe, but you're not totally entertaining her so that she can start learning how to entertain herself. Don't feel pressure to structure every minute of her day or to start getting her ready for college already :) You sound like you're doing a great job!

  • I do give her time in her playpen with her toys and books...becuase she is just recently sittling up good on her own. She doens't like tummy time. I know I still need to give it to her. but as soon as she flips over on her tummy she yells at me.

  • Yep, it's all good... alone time, time on the floor with you, time out observing the world (be sure to talk with her when you're out shopping, etc), time with toys... I know, it seems like it would be boring for them. Very soon when she starts crawling and things they start to make it more clear what interests them! You're doing fine! No flash cards or DVDs yet!
