>>>Our low key days usually just consist of lounging in the hammock and making funny faces at the camera. Β Basically this baby girl has become my shopping buddy, movie buddy, errand buddy, and cuddle bug πŸ™‚ Β I understand that all moms have different even demandingΒ schedules and such, and not all are stay at home moms. Β But I’m a firm believer in that “you have time for what you MAKE time for” Β So there’s no excuse NOT to spend time w/your little one(s) even if it’s just an hour. Β There’s also nothing more IMPORTANT or REWARDING. Β At first, I felt a little overwhelmed and discouraged, like “oh no, am I ready to stop being Joi, and commit to the momΒ job?” Β But once I changed my perspective (fortunately that didn’t take long) from being a mom=tiring, demanding, no time to take care of Joi, or be happyΒ toΒ I get to hang outΒ with this sweet little person, who adores me more than any other human being on this planet. Β It became so much more fun, and I can honestly say that I LOVEΒ hanging outΒ with my baby girl. Β Β (I still need my “alone time” don’t get me wrong).

Here are some IDEAS that I’ve found make my relationship w/my baby more than just changing diapers, cleaning up messes etc.

1) Go for a walk—Doesn’t even have to be long, can be once around the block even.

2) Read some books

3) Take some funny pictures—Kylie also loves when I record us, then I show it to her, she just cracks up!

4) Go shopping—-And ps, having a stroller in the mall is like having your own personal shopping cart that goes w/you everywhere!

5) lay a blanket on the grass and watch her/him become fascinated by all the surroundings
