GAMES WITH BABY

From the minute your baby is born, the brain is creating thousands of synapses with every experience. We know that singing and talking to your baby is educational, but so is playing games like Peek-A-Boo and playing in front of the mirror. Check out these activities at Games with Baby. They list games appropriate by age for the first year of life. For those who would like to specifically target their baby's development, you can choose activities based on four categories: brain building, language and vocabulary, social and emotional, and movement and motor skills.

Hi Renee,
Thanks for your compliments and words of support. I'm not a pro photog so I owe all the best photos to my baby girl! Keep reading and enjoy!
