One mom's journey through first time motherhood.
A journal to her son, Tucker, inscribing his birth into this world, the lessons and tricks they learned along way, and what they are not telling you in the prenatal books and classes.

while daddy is away ...

While dad and visiting granddad were away on a father's weekend golf game, Tucker had a play date with his Baby Einstein play gym (thanks to uncle Walter and aunt Jennifer for the shower gift!). Of course, not having Tucker in my arms gave me the opportunity for some photo ops.

What is my review of the Baby Einstein? In the first few weeks it was looking a little grim. The gym was mostly used for a brief session of tummy time and a place to spit up. While looking in the mirror offered a few minutes of dedicated "play", the play gym was not a hot item with little Tucker. Fast forward to 8 weeks and Tucker is a play gym regular. The bright lights, bells, and whistles are all the rage with a coming of age 8 weeks old. Self gazing in the mirror is still a hot item, but the butterfly. birdie, and blinking star are getting some face time as well.

The Einstein is definitely becoming a place to put Tucker down for a bit allowing me to sit aside and talk to him or have some quick, quiet computing time. He's learning to follow and grab items and I'm thinking he'll like it even more in the coming months ...
