|Experimenting with adding solids to our daily routine|

|Relaxing into nap time|
Cohort 7's first couple months in the infant room have been all about routine -- eating, napping, outside time, diaper changes, etc. As we build consistency with each of these things, we are also nurturing our relationships with one another. The children feel safe knowing what they can expect, and the increased comfort leads to richer play and exploration. We all have equal parts in guiding this process -- we listen and observe, learning from each other how to develop a routine that feels comforting & secure. It is a beautiful development that will be the foundation of our time together, and I love thinking about how each cohort's journey is so unique and special. I am cherishing this time!
