Your child is continuing to learn at breakneck speed and his language is going through a developmental spurt right around now.
This is a good time to help your toddler to get to know his relatives by letting him play with photographs. Who knows? When your mom comes to visit, your toddler might just warm her heart by crying out ‘Grandma!’ when she walks through the door (but don’t count on it). That’s ok, she will warm up faster if she knows what she looks like ahead of time.
What you will need are photos of your immediate family, and glue, scissors, and cardboard.
Cut into pieces slightly larger than the photos. Stick the photos on the cardboard. This will help keep them safe from little fingers.
Join your toddler on the floor or at a table. Be sure and let her help and name them as you paste. Keep the photos in a box so she can pull them out and talk about them. You can say ‘Honey, can you find Aunt Nancy?’ She will love it.
If you want your baby to grow into a happy person, work your own sense of humor and get him laughing as often as possible. So smile mom! Don’t hold back. Laugh openly and loudly.
Now is the time to be sociable, optimistic, healthier, and more self-confident.
If you want your baby to grow into a happy person, work your own sense of humor and get him laughing as often as possible. Laughter is contagious, even with infants. Making your baby laugh is, for sure, the most gratifying parental task. Laughing is also a great disease prevention therapy.
Mommy, your face is so funny! Your laugh and your smile is the best way to get your little sweetie laughing out loud. So smile mom!
Don’t hold back. Laugh openly and loudly. Make funny faces. Play hide and seek. She will take her cue from you. The more you make her laugh the more likely it is that your baby will become positive minded. Every time you get her up from nap time, hold her, or change her diapers, look into her eyes and laugh your head off. The more the better.
