Your Brilliant Baby in Week 42: Pairing Objects with Actions
What your infant learns this week
Week 42 Brain Booster
Because your baby is busy all on her own determining what actions go with which objects around her, do nothing more than honor and support your baby’s interest in such pairings. Do so by watching your child as she plays and putting language to it, “You’re feeding your doggie, now he’s going to take a nap. All living creatures eat and sleep. Cars don’t. They need keys, gasoline, and engines to move around.”
On a day when you’re feeling playful, pretend to feed ice cream to your car. You’ll likely see surprise written all over your baby’s face.
