are so curious. Have you noticed your baby using her senses,
her arms, her legs, her mouth, her movements to learn about
her world? She makes a discovery and then explores some
more. She learns to move a mobile by batting it with her
arms. She figures out that little rattles fit right in her
mouth, but big round balls are more fun to toss away. She
learns that silly adults will pick up whatever she throws
and give it back to her. These experiences teach your baby
about things around her. She will start to wonder, "What's
this called?" and "how does this work?" In
this section you will find suggestions for responding to
your baby's natural curiosity.
