Lolo is 17 months old, walking everywhere, trying to break things and learning how to say a few words. This year is going super quick which means, my baby is no longer considered “newborn” but a “toddler!” Where did all that time go?! 😭
I usually take Lolo to baby groups twice a week, which allows her to interact with other children.
During the warmer months the group tends to be busier, more babies to play with. I noticed that Lauren would rather sit at the painting table, scribble all over paper and make a mess in paint.
Initially I was worried thinking I hope my baby isn’t shy, does she not like meeting new people? My baby is a bit like me to be honest, I don’t actively start conversations with people I don’t know but I’m getting better!
Lolo has also made a handprint which I helped paint and add a splash of glitter to.
Sometimes I’m unable to get to the baby groups, so I purchased some baby friendly paint on Amazon to use at home. All you need really is
- Old Newspapers.
- An Apron.
- Old clothes that you don’t mind getting splashed with paint
- A bag full of energy!
I’ve also noticed that Lolo loves going to the book corner, and flicking through some books. Obviously she’s too young to understand them but I think it’s really good how she enjoys a good book. ( Just like her mama.)
I recently purchased a few new titles from my local The Works bookshop and toyshop. They always have amazing deals on books, the latest one being 3 books for £5. You can also visit your local library, and get a few there to keep baby entertained for a while.
I have also done a previous post about reading with Lauren, which you can check out Here!
