I know that they say that you can´t spoil babies. I believe that´s right. But I also believe that they definitely can have opinions from an early age and not only about their “needs”. When Hayley gets bored she wants music, go out to the horses or take a bath. She has a special cry for that, it´s not a real cry just kind of a cry. If I go and get the Baby Björn that she always sits in when we´re around the horses the cry stops. The cry stops when she sees the baby carrier, not when I put her in it or when we walk down the stairs. It´s like she anticipate fun time. Same thing when I turn on the water to the bath tub. From what age can babies start anticipating things?
Today Hayley and I spent most of the day outdoors in the garden and with the horses. Several times when I turned my back to the horses and started to walk away from them she started that cry that isn´t really a cry. When I stopped and faced the horses again she stopped! We watched the horses for a while and then I tried to do some other chores, instantly that cry came back. Only as long as we stayed very close to the horses she was content. She stayed awake for four hours straight in the baby carrier which never happened before. When we got back inside she fell asleep when I was feeding her. So did I! She is so interested in all the things that goes on around her. I love seeing the world with her eyes.
