Babysitting a Four and a Half Month Old 

Matt and I had discussed several times how we would like to get some hands on practice with a baby before I give birth. Our  friends Joe and Katki wanted to go see “Guardians of the Galaxy II”, and were delighted to have us babysit their four and a half month son, Ishan. When the  baby was dropped off to us, he was peacefully dozing.

Matt took a moment to check on him as he peacefully slept.

As Katki had told us, he enjoyed sitting on our laps a lot.

We both enjoyed giving him his bottle.

Katki mentioned he took a nightly walk via stroller, so I made sure to take him for a spin around our large block.

After the walk, Matt played peek-a-boo with him.

We learns that sometimes he wasn’t interested in playtime even with his favorite toy.

The other times, he sound the same toy fascinating.

After all this activity, he fell asleep again for almost two hours.

We had a great time with Ishan and leaned a lot. Next time we will babysit him for longer, perhaps even a whole weekend.
