Awareness Of Self And Others
At this age, your baby becomes aware of his own movements and enjoys watching them. He likes looking at himself in the mirror. He will respond to a photograph of himself. He also begins to distinguish familiar faces from strange ones.
Things To Stimulate His Mind
Give your baby things in assorted colors, shapes, and sizes to play with and explore. Toys that require him to do something--nesting cups or stacking rings--will stimulate him to try new things. He will naturally discover and strengthen new abilities. The more you interact with your baby and his toys, the more effective they will be at stimulating his mind.
