Hey so I work for a very nice family taking care of a 16 month old. I watch her for 40 hours per week. I started working for them this winter when the baby 12 months old. Since it was winter when I started and the baby wasnt walking and napping twice a day still, it seemed to make sense to stay inside. I'd offer to take her to baby playgroup or mention that she would probably start walking at the same time the weather warmed up and so on. When I started checking out books from the library, the librarian told me of a few playtime's and storytimes for kids her age.
