Activities: early learning / infant stimulation program outlined in How Smart is Your Baby by Glenn Doman.
I’m just going to throw this out there that this week was not that great of a week for our early learning program.
We were gone from very early Tuesday morning to late Wednesday night (went on some field trips and stayed overnight at a friend’s house) and it really sort of threw off our whole week. We were out and about all day Saturday and Sunday as well.
We did still do a few of the activities here and there throughout the week. An odd balance session. Reciting our poem. Listening to the classical music piece. Gentle lifting with the grasp reflex. I showed her her visual stimulation cards a couple times, even though she wasn’t that interested (I think she is a little too advanced for them).
Aria had a few minutes in her track this week. She also naturally had a lot of tummy time, as she loves being on her tummy.
She continues to love standing up (supported, of course).
Such a big girl!
We of course had lots of conversations. No matter how busy we are, I can’t resist that sweet face, those infectious smiles, and those beckoning coo’s and ahh’s and oh’s.
She is such a talker and such a smiler. We love our daily conversations!
She also started sucking her thumb this week. I think it’s so adorable!
