What caught my eye about that schedule were the times it said things like, "he sits in his bouncer while I do laundry" or "he sits on my lap while I go on the internet or watch TV." My day is not quite as structured as that one at this point, but I don't have time scheduled for our baby to sit by herself in a swing or bouncer while I do other things. If something needs to be done around the house, I usually try to do it while she's napping. If I absolutely can't get it all done at nap time then she either does it with me (this is usually how it goes), or I might use her bouncy seat or Bumbo to get it done quickly, or I wait until my husband is home and get it done while they are playing.
So I don't know if it's just me that doesn't schedule time like that, or if anyone else found that interesting. Maybe it's because I'm a new mom, but I feel like when she's awake I want to talk to her and play with her. Rarely do I sit her down and then engage in something else. If I do (like now) she is beside me on the couch and I talk with her or pick her up while I'm working. Am I still just overly-fascinated with my little miracle? Am I ruining her by being engaged with her too much during the day? Will she not know how to entertain herself as she gets older and require constant interaction? I am talking to you, Mom-friends! What is the scoop on this issue?
And because I know you're curious, tonight I will start another 24-hour chronicle of what life is like with our now 4 month-old baby girl!
