Grabby baby

Mia is going through another difficult baby stage - she's into everything. You can't leave anything lying within her reach, as she's also not quite past the putting things into her mouth stage. She has discovered that all our cupboards are full of interesting things, and we have a lot of cupboards. Her favourite at the moment is the craft cupboard, with all those tempting glue sticks, paint bottles and glitter. Harry is becoming increasingly frustrated at his carefully set up toys and games being interrupted and everything being scattered about. He has learned that some activities are saved for when she is having her nap, and so he is constantly asking me to put her for a sleep so that we can play with the Lego or do a jigsaw.

Planning her attack
Luckily Harry is quite easy going, and his annoyance is only temporary, it's not long before he's back to cuddling her.

  1. LOL. Sounds exactly like my son. He is into everything too, I am continuously having to move him away from the TV, the SKY box, the DVD player, the toilet, the bath taps. It's endless and exhausting but great to see our little ones developing. His big sisters, like Harry would beg to differ.

    Of course they adore him though.

    1. It is exhausting isn't it! You can't leave them for a moment and constantly pulling them away from things. I think Harry liked it better when she just lay there! He will appreciate it more when she's bigger and can play with him properly (I hope!)

  2. Laura does a lot of things like jigsaws and crafts on the dining room table so Emily can't reach!

    It's lovely to see that cardigan getting more wear. :)

    1. I tried that, but Mia just hangs around the chair legs whinging. If I take her away to do something else then Harry starts whinging because I'm not doing the activity with him. Difficult stage at the moment! I think it's a lovely little cardigan!

  3. He will soon find out about shutting himself in his bedroom!

    1. I've not suggested that to him, that might work well!

  4. Gosh, this sounds all too familiar! So many activities are left until nap time so that my little boy who is 4, can play with his toys in peace. One builds, the other demolishes!

    1. Yes, it's really difficult to entertain two little ones of different ages at the same time!
