Young children love to see themselves and others in the mirror! Sit with your child in front of the mirror. "I see________in the mirror" "I see mommy/ daddy in the mirror." "I see your stuffed animal in the mirror." Put a mirror at eye level for your child. What does your child do?
Children are introduced to solid food around this age. Put frozen peas on your child's high chair tray. Cut up a banana and put it on the tray. (Don't worry about messes.) Steam vegetables and put them on your child's tray. Let your child explore different kinds of healthy food. Start making a list of the foods your child likes. Make eating time a social and fun time for your child!
Children love this game! Crawl behind your child and say, "I'm going to get you!" Gently grab and lift your child in the air and say, "I have you!" Enjoy spending special times with your child laughing and having fun together. You are building a special relationship with your child when you do this.
