Baby Likes to Eat Her Hand

Baby Likes to Eat Her HandMy baby likes to eat her hand.

She tries to stick her entire hand in her mouth and chomps down on her own hand with her gums. Thankfully she has no teeth yet, but it still looks like she is happily munching on her hand.

Arya started eating her hand a few weeks ago, but in the past few days she has been eating her hand constantly.

Come Here Cleo by Caroline Mockford – Book Review

Come Here Cleo by Caroline MockfordAfter Arya liked the last Cleo book we read to her I knew she would want to look through another baby book about the cute orange cat.

The front cover of Come Here, Cleo! by Caroline Mockford has a large picture of Cleo sitting on a tree. Cleo’s orange stripes and orange body contrast with the brown tree and green background.

Whenever my baby likes the front cover of a book she always likes the rest of the book as well.

Comfortable Baby Gown

Comfortable Baby Gown - DancingNow that Arya is getting bigger we’ve had to pack away her small newborn clothes and start using bigger size baby clothes.

One of her new outfits is a cute one-piece that looks like a bag.

I’ve learned that these baby bags have a better name; they are called baby gowns. While I hate the poorly designed baby gowns that make my daughter cry, I would highly recommend comfortable baby gowns to any parent.

The trick is to find a baby gown with one of two features.

The more common feature is for the gown to be loosely-fitted on the bottom with no heavy fabric to prevent the baby clothing from riding up and rubbing against baby’s sensitive tummy.

The better feature is for the gown to have front buttons on the bottom to hold it securely in place on top of baby’s diaper.

Curious George Goes Fishing by H.A. Rey – Book Review

Curious George Goes Fishing by H.A. ReyAfter a recent trip to the library we borrowed another Curious George book to read to Arya.

Curious George Goes Fishing by H.A. Rey is another one of the large selection of books about the cute monkey held by the main branch of the Boston Public Library.

Since the children’s reading room — the Margaret and H.A. Rey Children’s Room — is named after the couple who created the monkey, it makes sense that the library would keep a large selection of books about Curious George.

When Do Babies Recognize Their Parents

When Do Babies Recognize Their ParentsOver the past week Arya reacted differently to strangers than to her parents.

From the time she was born our daughter loved to be carried by everyone. She didn’t care who was carrying her as long as they were holding her securely. That changed last week.

On two occasions during the week Arya became grumpy when another person carried her and only settled down after Mommy or Daddy took her back. That lead me to question: when do babies recognize their parents?

BooBoo by Olivier Dunrea – Book Review

BooBoo by Olivier DunreaThe front cover of BooBoo by Olivier Dunrea shows a little blue goose staring at colored bubbles against a white background.

The gosling, whose name is BooBoo, is cute enough to attract the attention of young children.

Arya tried to touch BooBoo when she first saw the book. Any time my baby tries to touch a book it’s a sure sign that she will be interested enough to pay attention throughout the story.
