State of the Baby Addendum

  • Ruby is very comfortable in water. She always enjoys her baths (unless it’s too late and she’s really tired). Today, we took her in a swimming pool for the second time, and she took it in stride. Her feet kicked under her the whole time, and she stayed calm, even when her mean parents dipped her face in the water.
  • Speaking of kicking, it’s worth noting that Ruby kicks her legs probably 70-80% of the time she’s awake. The vigor of the kicking varies, from upset to apathetic.  She doesn’t kick when in a sling (but does in the Baby Bjorn), when asleep (usually), and when holding her toes.
