12 Ways To Play With Your Baby Today

On the eve of my last baby’s first birthday

I am sharing 12 ways you can play with your baby

One for every month of Edie’s first year

I am feeling very reflective this evening

With my soon to be one year old asleep in my arms

Thinking about many things

Big and small

Including the direction of this blog

I know that I need to decide on a niche

And focus on growing my followers

By producing quality content

That I truly believe in and feel proud of

I want to promote learning through play

I want to share the hundreds of play posts and ideas I have in drafts

I want to share my passion for play

Use my teaching knowledge and experience

I want my blog to live up to its name of being educational and inspirational

I want to find a way to make a living wage from my blog

So I can contribute more to the household

And so validate spending more time doing blogging things

I want to be an advocate, a champion for playing and learning

I want to somehow weave in travel and local days out

And also my love of literature for children

With my belief in books as stimulus for learning and play
