We have daycare!! Starting in September Avery will be going to a warm and sensitive caregiver with only one other 12 month old little girl, from 9-1, 3 days a week. We will slowly increase that to 9-2:30 4 days a week. It is the perfect situation for us.
Avery is getting into EVERYTHING. Crawling is awesome – I particularly love it how she can follow me around the house without needing to be carried – but the baby proofing has to catch up with her. Just this morning alone she cut her finger sticking it in the floor heating vent, she pulled an unattached wall heating vent over onto herself, she got her finger stuck in the cat door, and she pulled a book off the shelf onto her head. She’s also pulling herself up onto her knees, so it won’t be long before she’s reaching things even higher up.
The chicken coop is done (just need to build the run this weekend) and it looks like we will be getting the chicks in about 2 weeks.
We are booked up for almost every weekend this summer already. Too many family and friends, maybe? Oh well, at least Avery should be able to have lots of new experiences this summer (like camping, twice!)
This blog is about my wife's and my experiences as we embark on the adventure of making a baby and then raising the child. I'm a PhD candidate trying to balance dissertation work and non-profit work with full-time parenting and home-maker endeavours. I'll candidly share my successes and failures in this balancing act.
