I am amazed at what a little person Sabine is becoming. I have to say that despite the massive nap strike this leap has brought on, the changes she is undergoing are absolutely awesome.
Sabine has started to actually “play.” She has toys that are true favorites, the best of which is this little stuffed tomato lady that her Auntie Laura gave her. She carries Tomato around as she explores the house, which is becoming more her domain and less ours.
I’m working hard to baby-proof the living room, hallway, “office” and kitchen. There are no doors separating these rooms so I want it all to be a big safe haven for her. This morning she and Tomato inspected the cat gate, the chair we sit on to remove gross NYC shoes, the trashcans at the kitchen and then the kitchen. She looked SO HAPPY to be able to roam and touch, look and taste things. This also makes Mama keep an even cleaner home. Yesterday I found her chewing on a piece of toast… I have not given her toast in days though! Last week I found her chewing on a piece of old tofu. OMG, the horror.
Here is a little video of the Tomato tour.
And here is a video of our nap protest. This kid… she is giving me a run for my sanity!
