Wait a minute…you mean these hands have a use?

 

20120212-171149.jpgHappy 3 months, little girl! You’re learning new things all the time! Thanks to a brilliant idea from Pap, Whit and I were inspired to try practicing “grabbing” with Lucy. She has recently started to notice objects a lot more and appears interested in them, so tonight we had a rare opportunity that Lucy was up for interacting after a tiring day at daycare! We started with a stuffed elephant rattle. Holding it in front of her, we noticed that she was actually trying to move her little hands to grasp it! This is definitely a new skill she’s honing! We moved on to her elephant pacifier and had even better results. Look out, world! Lucy’s figuring out that (1) those flailing things attached to her body might actually belong to her and are under her control, and (2) holding things and taking them to your mouth is fun! She’s like our little T-rex, shown here in this video:
