One of the things we love to do together is take a stroller ride to the park nearby. Ayanna loves being outdoors. She’s grown to become very observant of her surroundings. I talk to her at every opportunity. I comment out loud on the things she sees, hears and smells.


Loving the sensation


Ayanna likes the swing, in particular. Now that she can sit and has stable head control, she gently swings. Most infants seem to enjoy swinging at around 8 or 9 months. We initially began with her on my lap while I gently rocked back and forth just so she could adjust to the sensation.


Dressed just right


The vitamin missing from breast milk most notably is Vitamin D. So Ayanna gets a dose of it when out and about in the sun. The sun’s intensity is greatest between 10 am and 3 pm. We make our trips early in the morning. Ayanna is clothed in a cotton top, pants and a cap. We stay out for about half an hour.
