All of a sudden, your baby doesn’t seem like a baby anymore! This is an amazing time for your little one as they’re very aware of the world around them. Even though they’re not saying them yet, your baby is already learning words. A wonderful way to learn new words is by pointing out pictures in favorite books and talking about each thing on the page. They’re also learning about how books work so having them hand you a book can give you a chance to talk about how you hold it. Letting your baby turn the pages gives you an opportunity to praise their own efforts at handling a book.
