Baby Phoenix Learns How To Play

Video by MJ Klein

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?

  1. As usual Phoenix is precious. She caught onto what to do. Loved her delight in the music.

    1. thanks Carolyn. since i have no previous experience with children, i find all of this stuff new and interesting. it was fun to watch her working out what needed to be done. take care.

      1. I guess I have not been taking care as I got out of the hospital yesterday after three days. Glad to be home. Looking forward to more pictures and videos of Phoenix.

  2. 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.

    1. hi Stefan. you are so right about music. i sing to Phoenix all the time. her favorite song is “The Muffin Man” but i’m sure that will change soon! take care and thanks.
