Hello! My name is Megan O'Brien. I am CPR certified and a Certified Home Health Aid. I have seven years experience watching and taking care of babies and childrien. I am available full time and am highly reliable. I love babies! I help them with development by interacting with them and giving them my full attention! I find it so exciting when they make the smallest milestones, such as a new noise, a different facial expression, a new tooth, reaching for a toy, crawling, and of course the faces they make when trying certain foods! It really makes me smile! I love experiencing seeing them grow, it truly is so special to me. I also love singing to them (even though my voice is not so good! haha) I do everything for the children as well that I have watched over the years. I take them to the park, play imaginary games, create books, arts and crafts, drive them to school, host playdates, cook, bathe, and bedtime routine. I am very patient and caring. I am a loving aunt and godmother. I truly love the families I have worked for and have formed great relationships with them.

I have experience working with twins, as well as infants and preschool aged children. My twins boys needed to recieve occupational and physical therapy svcs wkly that I accompanied them too. In the previous family that I worked for, I cared for a preschool aged boy, adn his little baby sister. I helped with homework, and booked palydates for the older child. Cooked, cleaned, and bathed him. I also did arts and crafts, and cooked with the boy. For the infant, I established nap times, and coducted daily specific feedings. Due to infant development training class I had taken, i was not only able to understand her growth but enhance it.

It was a beautiful experience to have under my care and responsibility the most valuable treasure a couple could have, their first newborn child. I showed my dedication and gave it my all. Since the first day I met my little princess she was only ten years old, I felt this tenderness towards her and as time progressed my love grew even more and more for her. Later on her sister was born which filled me with happiness. I always knew how to give them quality time with a lot of patience and dedication. While taking care of them day by day I taught them to discover their surrounding environment, I sang to them, and played with them just as if I was a little girl because most importantly was for them to evolve emotionally and physically.
