  • I have been putting DS on his play mat with his boppy propping him up. He stares at his hanging toys and bats and coos at them. It's really quite cute and he loves it. W also read books to him or just egg him on to talk to us. I have been sick all day

  • If weather permits we go for walks in his moby wrap or stroller.  We spend a lot of time with him propped on my knees just talking and playing peek a boo games.  The play mat and bouncy seat will buy us 10-15 minutes each if he's in the right
