Comments for Moo, Baa, La La La
Sean received Moo, Baa, La La La! as a Hannukah gift two years ago. It is a cute non-sense book that takes the typical animal themed board book and turns it on end. It starts out in a straight forward manner with cows saying moo and sheep saying baa, but then the pigs aren't saying oink. Instead, they are sining "La la la!"
After the initial gag that explains the title, the book wanders on to more exotic animals and what they might say. These last few pages lack the rhytmn and humor of the first half, which is a shame for such a short book.
My new "boss":
Harriet really enjoys sitting in the high chair. Besides getting to eat two meals a day from the chair, she also can supervise me while I work. She is actually easier to handle if I keep her now in the high chair than if I leave her in her bouncy seat.
When I'm at the table now doing an update I will bring Harriet along and put her back in her seat (if she isn't already there).Then I will put on some music (usually iTunes) and get back to work. Today she danced in her seat to the music and sometimes when I was concentrating on work more than on her, she would make a very silly face to get my attention. She would cross her eyes and stick out her tongue until I would notice and laugh. Then she'd smile and go back to dancing.
Meanwhile, Harriet's big accomplishment is the eating of solids. She started eating solids at the start of December but since returning home from the holidays she has really made eating solids part of her daily routine. Earlier this week Ian and I set up Sean's old high chair and now Harriet can join us for breakfast and lunch. She goes to bed too early to join us for dinner. For breakfast (after her dawn nursing session) she has rice cereal mixed together with water and some sort of puree. So far her favorites are sweat potatoes, squash, peas and apple sauce. For lunch she has just a few spoonfuls as she's usually full from nursing but she still likes to participate in the meal.
