Time for Mia

I was feeling a bit bad after posting the other day that I hadn't unpacked any toys yet for Mia. So I hauled down the big box of rattles, plastic teethers, rattles, sensory bottles, balls and books. I lay her on the changing mat and let Harry loose.

Baby on mat with lots of toys

It was fascinating to watch Harry interact with her, he loved playing with her. The game consisted mainly of Harry taking out one toy at a time and dumping it on her tummy with accompanying commentary:
"Here's a pretty one, Mia" 
"There you go, Mia"
"This one's got water in it!"
"I like this one!"

Although she didn't seem to be paying much attention, and did look a bit bemused, she was obviously entertained, and although not grabbing toys yet she was feeling the different textures in her hands and mouth. It kept them both entertained for quite some time, which is always a bonus, and it helped me to realise that it won't be long before there will be activities which I can do with them both together at the same time.


  1. So sweet. :) Laura does the same with Emily, she says 'I'm going to get Emily a toy!' and then brings most of the contents of the toy box over to Emily until she's sitting in a pile of cuddlies and rattles, usually looking a bit bemused. But as you say it keeps them both quiet for a while.


I love reading your comments!
