Comments for Crazy Harriet
Yesterday I just wasn't up to blogging and I probably wouldn't have been able too even if I'd tried. Harriet spent all of Sunday cruising, crawling, free standing and getting into everything. When I wasn't chasing her down, I was cleaning house because Ian's parents are visiting at the end of the week.
One thing I was able to do since Harriet no longer needs room for "tummy time" was move the coffee table back to its proper place. I also emptied out a bunch of material I've been storing in there since 2005. I just don't have the time for doing sewing crafts that I had hoped I would. I also have a better idea of what types of material I like working with. Rather than holding on to a bunch of stuff I don't want to use, I will buy small quantities of things I do want to use when I need them.
The now empty coffee table is a perfect place to store toys Sean and Harriet use but not as frequently. The most popular toys are now on a disused bookshelf by the stairs. The table gives Sean somewhere to play with his board games and provides one more place for Harriet to practice her cruising.
Near the end of the day Sean decided to color at kitchen table. Harriet followed him over there. She discovered Caligula napping on the chair next to Sean. The easiest way to get to the cat was under the table. For some reason she decided the easiest way to get under the table was to walk. So Harriet took her first steps under the table!
After a full day of cruising, walking, crawling and what-not, Harriet was on over drive by bed time. She ended up waking up about three times. Twice were with nightmares and once was a diaper change. All of those wake up events happened during my usual blogging time. And that is the long winded reason why I didn't blog last night.
