Today I was sitting with AJ and he was disinterested in his toys that have all the lights, bells and whistles. So I decided to do something simple and fun. I got out some pots and a pan, a couple of spoons, showed him what to do and he went right to it. He played with these longer than most toys. I think what I as an adult look at and think "wow this looks fun" may not be what really is fun to an 8 month old. I'm really going to try and think out of the box to engage him more in things that really help aid in his development.
Stay tuned for what we might be playing with next : )
