Saturday, 4 January 2014: Two Hundred and Seventy Eight Days Old.
We put Ayla back in her new walker this morning and she was off and running.
Within about 60 seconds Ayla had found herself a TV remote, chased down a bag of recycling rubbish and tried to eat cat food (but fortunately the best she could do was run over it).
Ayla also cornered me in the kitchen where my poor ankles paid the price, and she made her way to the back door where she proceeded to ram it in an attempt to escape.
Having the walker is proving to be a good transition for Hubby and I, not just Ayla.
It’s highlighting to us, very quickly, all the things around out house that will need moved up higher if we want them to survive the next few years.
And, its demonstrating the things we’ve been doing that are no longer a good idea eg;
– don’t leave cups and plates on the ottoman/coffee table
– get a pass code for my iPhone ASAP and
– leaving a pile of clean washing in the lounge room is just asking for trouble…. Etc
It’s fun though, and exciting, and strangely I’m no longer feeling as anxious as I was about Ayla becoming mobile.
Instead, I’m looking forward to a new chapter and I can’t wait to interact with my baby girl on a whole new level… Literally.
PS: Ayla got her highest temperature ever this evening, reaching 39.4 degrees. I think its related to either her runny nose, an earache or teething but thankfully baby Panadol brought it down.
