"No, I'm pretty sure she's the Antichrist, but we love her anyways."
This is Part 2 of my series "Is She A Good Baby?", inspired by the book "Our Babies, Our Selves". You can read Part 1 here.
|Baby! Why don't you want to be on the floor? Bad Baby!|
We rarely have other people, even family members, watch Ivy. Not because we don't want to get out, oh no, that's DEFINITELY not it. And not because we are leery about letting her be cared for by others. Mitch was having sleepovers at 1 month old and all of the older kids have made the rounds to drop-in childcares, church nurseries, babysitters, and the like. We tried to do the same with Ivy, but by about 3 months old it was pretty apparent that she wasn't like our other kids. The other kids happily bounced from one caregiver to another with ease. They entertained themselves well and were pretty "easy" to care for. Well, easy one at a time anyhow. Together as a mob they get a bit out of control.
