Day 3: Building with blocks (baby style)
I pulled out a basket of blocks, sat on the carpet nearby and watched. Little c eventually crawled over and began taking them all out of the basket. He mouthed a few. He threw a few. I then, silently, started stacking a few blocks. He quickly crawled over to knocked them down.
Mommy builds it... I knock it down! We had fun working together... repeating the process.
The building didn't last 15 minutes, but we did continue to play with a ball that was nearby.
I believe that sometimes just being close while he plays is supporting him enough. I don't want to interfere too much.
Does anyone have any advice/ideas on supporting infant play?
