Floor Bed Update – 17 months

Now that Brooke and Mackenzie are 17 months, I decided to do an update on their sleeping situation. They are still sleeping on the same floor bed they’ve been sleeping on since they were four months old. Here’s a video of their bedroom:

The best shoes

Love these shoes. It is soft, which is excellent for young walkers. And when I say soft, I mean SOFT. There are many baby shoe brands that claim they are soft because you can bend the shoe when you apply adult strength. That does not qualify as soft for a baby’s developing feet.

These Swedish-made shoes are great for indoor walking and small amount of outdoor walking. They don’t come off easily because they wear more like a sock than a shoe. I’ve done my research on shoes and these really are the best. Read more about the best kind of shoes for your babies.

A Great Book

Monday, March 5th, 2012 1:36 pm | By Stephanie Woo

The best books for kids are ones based in reality.

Elementary school kids love fantasy, but very young kids, with their limited time on earth, are still doing all they can to learn about this world. So give them books that are based on things they can see, touch and experience in their everyday life. Don’t confuse them (and possibly scare them as they get older) with fantasy, myths or fairy tales. Put away books with animals that talk or go to school. YOU may find this boring, but it’s good for THEM to play on the swings in the park and then read a book about a child who plays on the swing, or for them to read books about children who nap, bathe, eat and sleep.

Which is why I love this book. It is based on reality, it’s about all the things you can with your hands, and most of the images are ones little kids can relate to, like waving bye-bye, playing peek-a-boo and putting on shoes. My kids love this book. I’ve been reading it to them for months now, and now, they will read it by themselves and do all the hand gestures that go along with it!

That’s M giving herself a hug!

Mackenzie waves bye-bye, just like the boy in the picture
