Today we decided to let Baebae loose in the upstairs hall outside of her "home" (which until now has been Mark's office). Funny thing is that although she had been trying to get out of the room on occasion when we were going in and out, she was more than hesitant to do any real explorations on her own.
We decided to close all of the doors upstairs, except the one to our bedroom (right across the hall from the office) which would allow Baebae to see some of the upstairs as well as the downstairs hall too. She made a couple of tentative circuits of our bedroom, went down the stairs (and right back up), and then back into her "safe room". Michele suggested we let her look around on her own without her "helicopter parents" watching her every move, so later when we went downstairs to be with Cosmo and Star we opened the office door. I am not sure what she did, but an hour later when I went back up she was sleeping in her room.
We'll try it again and keep trying until she seems to like more room to roam.
On another note, Baebae had two visitors today and was sweet and friendly to them both. I am very pleased that she seems affectionate and playful, as well as being beautiful. All in all I am very encouraged by her progress!!
