Baby of the Week

We stayed with friends over the weekend, and they have a fourteen month old baby girl named Eliza.  We are way past babies.  Our youngest is fifteen; our oldest twenty-two.  Way past babies — waiting for grandchildren.  We were a bit apprehensive about spending the weekend with a baby, without a full-time babysitter…

Anyway, this baby is the best baby ever.  She goes to bed at 7:30 p.m. and gets up at 7:30 a.m.  She lies quietly in her crib if she is not sleeping, playing with her toys and looking around.  She naps twice a day, for an hour and a half each time.

She eats vegetables and chicken, and loves avocado (the best food for brain development until the age of two).  She is a superstar!

She went running with us both days, and enjoyed her ride, happily humming and singing as we ran.  She was a little lady in restaurants and stores, never crying.  She doesn’t walk yet, which makes her an even bigger rock star in my book.  The later they crawl, walk, and talk, the better, right? If you have older children you will probably agree.

Her mom cracked me up.  She told me that Eliza’s friends are so wild and poorly behaved that she doesn’t want her to have play dates any more.  She may become corrupt! I told her that she will need to home school her daughter if she wants her to remain perfect.  Her baby’s friends bite, throw food… even cry sometimes.  Bad babies!!!

I name Eliza baby of the week (possibly even the month).
