Sweet Arielle can sit up and has finally understood the art of Crawling. And that means, at the grocery store, we can ditch the baby car seat as well as the baby carrier. Now I love that baby carrier but my sweet girl is really getting big and the weight of her on my back is a bit much. I mean she is in front of me but my back just can’t handle carrying her around too long. So I embrace gladly her sitting up so well….not so much the crawling everywhere.
I LOVE Costco, well I LOVE their shopping carts. With Gavin being little still and Arielle sitting up so well I am able to place the both of them in the cart. Before, when Arielle was in her car seat, while at the grocery store she would cry and get upset that she couldn’t see anything. I would also place her in the carrier too and that helped. Now that she is big she is loving being able to see as well as sitting next to her brother. Yay! Grocery shopping isn’t a nightmare anymore. She loves sitting next to her brother but I think she is more ecstatic about being able to see anywhere her heart desires to turn her head. hehe.
I remember when Gavin was a baby and how we wanted so badly for him to get moving and start crawling. We also remember how quickly he got around and got into things we wished he didn’t. At that time we lived in a small apartment with very little storage places. I also remember that he didn’t crawl long, if at all, and he would mostly push himself upwards on furniture and walk along the couch or coffee table. We changed our minds quickly on how fast we wanted sweet baby girl to get around. Ha!
Well now she is crawling and crawling really well. We decided to blockade her in the living room. She isn’t really interested in the stairs yet but she loves the kitchen. Maybe that’s something to keep my eye on later. hehe. We have wonderful, very spendy, toys laid out in front of her and she is more interested in some dollar store measuring spoons, tissue paper (used for wrapping), or crazy pieces of who knows what on the floor. She definitely reminds me to vacuum every day. She plays with her toys but for some reason the silliest things keep her attention.
With her need to move and learn and play we will stay busy and keep an eye on her as she takes on the world in our house and elsewhere. There’s fun to be had. Let the fun begin!
