At play with baby: look at me

in Infant and Toddler, Visual Tracking

For those of you who have not graduated into the grandma club, then you may not appreciate this as much when I say…   There is nothing more amazing than watching your own child be a parent! I love watching my daughter be a mom – she is so natural and nurturing and smart! Shall I go on:)

During a recent grandma visit, I enjoyed watching my daughter play this little visual tracking game with baby K. The first thing she would do is get him to look directly at her. Then she would slowly move to one side and call his name or make little clicking sounds….

Then slowly back to the middle, waiting each time and gently encouraging baby K to catch up to her with his eyes…

Then slowly to the other side and again, wait for baby K to catch up to her with his eyes…

Keeping in mind that baby K is only about 4 weeks old, she held him close and supported him as they played.  I am not sure where my daughter gets her playful ideas from but watching her play with baby K is wonderful…

For those of you who are on the look out for infant lesson plans or just some quality playtime with baby add this to your list of to dos!
