It's amazing how much more engaged Miss F is since we put the mobile up. She stares at the patterns pretty intently, though for relatively short periods of time. As she grows, I'll make more mobiles according to her development.
I've been reading more blogs about Montessori methods, namely Chasing Cheerios and How We Montessori. In some respects, I really like them because they demonstrate activities for young children. In another way, it's difficult because Miss F is so young that there's not much I can do with her. I feel like I'm neglecting her, though I spend probably a few hours a day with her in my arms without distractions. But for now, I think that successful nursing, cloth diapering with minimal leakage, sleeping up to four hours at a shot, and what little I can do to keep her occupied will be sufficient for me.
