***Please read this before responding*** We are looking for a part time sitter who likes the early morning hours (6 am), possibly 1-2 evenings also, TBD. Will be around 20-25 hours a week. We both work in health and fitness with semi regular schedules. We are looking for someone who is interactive, attentive, likes to make babies laugh, read children's books, and is child CPR certified. Our daughter's nickname is Penguin. She's a happy, little baby, who is extremely chill. She has never cried longer than 20 minutes and has been sleeping through the night since 5 weeks. Let's just say, we've been extremely lucky with how easy she has been or so we've been told. We are not rigid with eating and nap time. She sleeps and eats when she's tired or hungry. She goes nuts for a banana and cereal blend. She is becoming mobile and about to become a little trouble maker crawling all over the place. I hope you can keep up with those tiny, chubby legs. She loves music, My Girl by the Temptations is her favorite song and instantly soothes her. Reggae, African, Latin, and even metal music is on regular rotation in our household. We have eclectic tastes and have a high value on her learning about all the cultures of the world. Native Spanish speaker is a bonus. If you speak another language, we would ask you to speak to her in that language all the time. Help that brain develop! Any questions? Please let us know.
