When Noah was first born, I was dead set on reading to him every day, singing his ABC's every day...even counting to ten in English and Spanish every day. I would do other little things as well, such as point to his nose and say "Noah's nose" and then point to mine and say "Mommy's nose." However, a month or two into his little life, I slowed down on those sorts of things because I thought I was probably jumping the gun, I didn't see any recognition of understanding, and I read an article from Baby Center that said that loving, touching, laughing, and holding your baby was teaching him so much in and of itself. Noah is 6 months now, and after a conversation with Matt the other night, I think it is time for me to begin incorporating these little "lessons" back into our routine. Where should I begin though? What types of activities are appropriate for this age? I know my friend Vanessa does some schooling with her 4 year old every day, and I'd like to do a bit of the same. Just seems harder with a 6 month old. I don't exactly know what to do. Any thoughts?
