One day I was nursing my newborn daughter. Her eyes were closed and she was settling in for sleep as she filled her tummy. I was excitedly anticipating her nap so I could rest my own eyes as well. When she finished eating I put her in her bed, as usual. Before I even made it across the room, I heard her little voice cooing and giggling in a very awake, alert kind of way. I picked her up and tried to rock her back to sleep but to no avail. She was awake and I wondered, "What do I do with her now?" So I present you with a collection of activities to fill those awake times because babies grow up!
