Musical Fish

October 29, 2009 Sarah Coggins

Dylan recently mastered grabbing and pulling on the fish hanging overhead in his kick & crawl gym. I’ve shown him several times since we got it that the green fish plays music when a button is pushed. On Monday, I decided to show him a few more times using his hands to see if maybe he was at the point where he could learn to do it himself. Sure enough, a short time later, Dylan hit the button and the music played! When I told Trent about it that night, I commented that I wasn’t sure Dylan realized exactly what he was doing but was certain it was intentional. Looks like Dylan does know what he’s doing after all though – he has been hitting that button each playtime in it since.

Here’s a little capture of yesterday’s fun:

    How incredibly sweet. He is such a precious little boy. All those musical sounds made me flash back to when my kids were babies and had a ton of Fisher Price things like the mobile and exersaucer. You will be so glad you caught that on video. :):)

    Sure enough, he's figured it out! How sweet is that?! Maybe you'll have a musician in the house! ;-)

    Awww! Cam has figured out how to pull the lion on his bouncer so that it plays music. I think he just does it when trying to play, but who knows?! :)

    What a smart guy! That toy is great for his hand eye coordination.

    Thanks so much for giving me a little baby fix this morning! Amazing how he is growing and changing. No doubt that at all that Dylan knows exactly what he is doing!
