Tummy time for Hazel means strength training! It gives her little limbs a chance to get stronger and helps her keep her head up. She likes it, it isn't uncomfortable for her, in fact I think it is a nice reprieve from being wrapped up in blankets in her crib, on my bed or her little swing. It is a change from the norm. Don't you think we could all go for a little "tummy time" once in awhile? Take ourselves out of the routine/the mundane and stretch our limbs, hold our heads up a little stronger? I feel like these past few weeks have been my "tummy time". I don't run errands, I don't really cook or clean the house, I don't go to church--or anything else, I don't entertain, often I don't shower, I don't even sleep much...it is time for me to get my strength back and give Hazel enough strength so that I can confidently hold my head up--or just keep it on--and get back to doing all those things that I normally do.
During Lucy's nap, Seth has "quiet time" in his room. He is pretty good about playing quietly. I went in today to check on him and change his diaper (I know, I know, don't say it) and he said he was done having quiet time. I told him Lucy and daddy were still napping and so we still needed to have quiet time. He asked me if I could have quiet time in his room--I told him I was having my own quiet time in my room--his reply, "what are you playing in your room?" I thought about this question and wondered, what do I do to play? I haven't played enough lately. Like run around in the grass-four square-popsicle-jump in a pool-do a summersault-type play. Have you?
