Months 8 to 10: What a Wonderful World
By this point, many babies are crawling effortlessly. Batten down the childproofing hatches and get out of their way! It was at this point that I started getting a workout while Noah explored. In addition to following your baby as she roams, you can also try these quieter pastimes.
- Lie on your back and hold your baby while rubbing her tummy and kissing her cheeks. Guaranteed giggles!
- Read books aloud at the local library or bookstore to learn which ones make your baby's eyes go wide.
- Pause during stroller rides to let your baby gently touch flowers and shrubs at her level.
- If your baby is cruising, lie on the couch with two magazines—one for you to read, one for her to tear up—and watch her inch your way.
