The Adventures of Sabine and Tomato

04/15/2014

Belle

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.

Meet Tomato, Sabine’s new best friend!

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.

Finally passed out after a major nap strike. With Tomato. In the Rock 'N Play, which is a big no-no according to our sleep training instructions but OMG this kid desperately needed to nap!

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!

    Nap strikes are the worst.. I have one that does it almost daily. The day she slept 3 hours I though we needed to check for a pulse!

    Great videos! I love how she swims around the apartment! Her voice is precious.

    Good luck with naps. Ugh.

    I love the video of Sabine with her tomato! So cute! What kind of baby gate do you have? I need to get some with a pet door, too, but am concerned about keeping the door open for my kitty (who is 14). Is the pet door big enough for Sabine to wriggle through if she really wanted to? Thanks!!
