She rarely gets fussy while we are out. She actually gets fussy when we stay home all day. This baby just likes to be on the go (unless that means being in the car). The more people around the better. I feel bad for her when we are on the train and she starts waving to people who ignore her. She stops waving and keeps her hand up in the air. Her smiles fades and she just stares at them. It is so sad! she just wants to make friends with everyone.
I was always such a believer in keeping children on schedules. From working at daycares and being a nanny I saw how good it was for kids. There were so many things I said I wouldn't do when I had babies but that went out the window. Even if you have worked/raised kids for 10 years, it is completely different when you have your own.
All I know is that Elinor is one of the happiest babies I have ever been around. She loves life. I hope the way we are raising her will make her easy going and well rounded.
