Motor Skill Activities for Babies

Motor Skill Activities for Babies

The first year and a half for any baby can be a tough one. Once a baby is able to sit up, they usually desperately want to move but can’t. Once a baby can crawl, they want to walk but can’t. My little guy is in the stage of wanting to keep up with his sisters but not quite walking. He is also a climber to his own peril, and has tumbled off boxes, down a few stairs, and only just recently learned how to safely get off the bed by backing up and sliding off. I try to encourage our baby to practice new movement skills by holding his hands and walking him around, setting up obstacle courses for baby to clamber through, and encouraging my baby boy to feed himself using a spoon. On the flip side, I don’t want my baby to grow up too fast so I’m enjoying every day of him being little and dependent. Here are a few ways we encourage baby to practice his motor skills and learn through sensory play time.

My Hospital Bag Checklist

My Hospital Bag Checklist

With just 2 weeks left until my due date things are getting a little crazy around here. We’ve already had one false alarm where we thought maybe Baby Girl was coming a little too early. Thankfully she’s stayed put a while longer but the false alarm (and the fact that my first baby came fast and early) made me realize I really need to get things in gear and be prepared! I’m so relieved to have my baby girl’s nursery completely finished and ready to welcome her home but now I need to get myself and my hospital bags ready to dash out the door if necessary. With my first baby I definitively over packed so this time around I’ve scaled it down to the things I really will use and yet I like to be well prepared so I didn’t go completely minimalist. Here’s a look at what I have in my ready-to-go hospital bag the second time around and some tips for packing a hospital bag for yourself.
