One of my goals for 2010 is to have more structured activity times for Ridley. He is learning so fast and I want to take advantage of every minute! Ridley is a very fast learner. He knows what things are off limits and usually when I speak to him, he will just turn around and go the other way.
Currently, we’re working on colors and shapes with Mega blocks and wooden shape blocks. I also show him flashcards of the ABCs and 123s; and we’re going over basic body parts: eyes, nose, toes, ears etc. He’s getting a little bit better about reading time. He doesn’t like to sit in my lap for any length of time, but I’m trying to train him to sit still for a short book!
In this video, you will see how Ridley can wave and do pat-a-cake and peek-a-boo. He is such a sweet baby!
Note: The dirty spot on his face is a “shiner” that he got while playing at my Memaw’s. Her coffee table (aka, large wooden chest) jumped up and knocked him in the face. My little guy has entered a tumbling stage!
I love watching Ridley learn. It is such a wonderful experience! I will keep you posted on his “continuing education!” Ha!
