We will most definitely have to keep these baby monitor video recordings so some day when our daughter becomes a famous dancer we have the proof to show it all started at a very young age.
Our daughter is now 10 months old. She is to the stage of starting to pull herself up on people and things. She has been doing this for about a month now, and she is getting really good at it.
Since the time she was born my husband and I have been playing her music to go to bed by. Not just lullabies for babies, and etc, but actual music that we listen to. It seems to really work well for her.
Anyway, recently my sister in law gave us a video baby monitor to place in our daughters room for us to not only hear but now see her when she is sleeping at night and taking her daytime naps.
Our daughter, let me tell you, just cracks us all up. Once the music comes on and we lay her down she goes right to sleep. Or so we think.
After walking back out of her nursery and into the living room to watch her on the camera we see that she has pulled herself up and is now bopping and dancing along to the music.
So, both my husband and I walk down the hallway and enter her room to find her “sleeping” in her crib.
We then go back into the living room, and check her out on the monitor and she is up and happily dancing along! This time my husband walks down the hallway alone and leaves me watching the baby video monitor to check on her.
As soon as she can hear him coming, she flops herself back down in the sleeping position and pretends to go back to bed. My husband, leans into her crib, kisses her and walks out. As soon as he shuts her nursery door, she was up dancing and shaking her booty along to the music!
I must admit this is absolutely adorable, but wow is she picking up some bad habits early! Silly girl!! I guess she will only dance if we won’t watch her!
I guess this answers a lot of questions for us, especially the big one being why she often wakes up from naps more cranky than she is before taking her nap. Shes too busy dancing her nap and bed times away!
We will most definitely have to keep these baby monitor video recordings so some day when she is a famous dancer we have the proof to show it all started at a very young age. In fact, long before she could even walk, she was boogieing in her bed room!
Our baby video monitor has been such a tremendous benefit for my husband and I because it helps us watch our baby, keep us in the know and laughing at our baby’s numerous pranks.
