Going Out To Play - #MySundayPhoto

The last few weeks it feels like we haven't gone out much. Little has had a cold (or two) and there hasn't been much sleep due to teething and other baby related issues. We haven't gone to many baby groups to avoid spreading germs and I have prioritised naps, or the opportunity for naps, over entertainment. It is so much harder to keep Little entertained at home, especially when we are both tired.

At home I can give my baby one toy or a box full and she will happily play for a while if she is rested. If we go out she hardly pays attention to the second hand germ ridden bits of plastic. There are those big interactive toys instead. The living, breathing toys also known as other babies. They provide a great opportunity for stroking until Mummies look away and then it's time for wrestling, eye grabbing and bum biting. 

Even if we just go to the shops or a cafe people watching keeps her engaged and cheerful. Plus I'm sure Little aims to get a smile out of as many different people as she can.
Being out is just easier.

I might not be able to blog, do housework or nap, but there is usually coffee, cake and an entertained baby. I'm glad we are out and about again. I'll be even happier when I've caught up on sleep.
