I forgot about this stage of babyhood. The one where they learn to sit upright and explore things around them. I forgot how curious six month old babies get and how they want to constantly be looking, searching, inspecting objects. I must have forgotten because overnight Magnus his this stage.
I used to leave Magnus in a lounger while I got myself and Johannes ready for work and school. Or leave him in his crib for a few minutes to get dressed. In the last week Magnus figured out how to sit up and now he wants action.
One of Magnus’ favourite toys are Baby’s First Blocks by Fisher Price. They come in fun colors that he loves, and the lid comes on and off easily. Because the blocks are big and easy to hold he can’t get enough of them and I feel really safe letting him play with them unsupervised for a few minutes. When Magnus is done dumping out the bucket, he uses the blocks as chew toys and keeps himself amused for a good chunk of time before he decides he wants me to join in the fun. Often this is just long enough for me to help Johannes brush his teeth or for me to put on something other than yoga pants for the office.
Since we love our blocks so much I thought you guys might too. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below. The giveaway ends on March 22.
