In this video we see Phoenix playing with her baby gym. She is so small that I have to lay her on a firm pillow (buckwheat husks, actually) so she can reach the paddles. Every time she hits a paddle, the machine plays another excerpt of the song. She has to keep hitting one of the paddles to keep the song going. Phoenix is 12 weeks and 5 days old at the time of this video. What do you think of her ability?
These kinds of toys are great, I remember when I brought one of them for my daughter she was immediately excited when she saw it – even before she had started to play.
One of the great things about having children, is that you can share things you like and pass on some of your skills. I think Phoenix will get a deep appreciation from music from you. I’m sure you sing to her a lot, and music is such a great way to connect to a baby anyway.
