Playtime is healthy and very important for growing babies. In this picture, my little girl is trying to sing along with the children songs played on DVD. I found it cute because she was trying really hard to pronounce the words. She had fun singing and playing with the microphone. Her daddy said she’s a singer like mommy. 🙂
Babies and kids’ exposure to music is highly essential to their development. Parents play a big role in contributing to this developmental factor. As early as a pregnancy, expectant mothers are advised to read and sing to their babies. A baby’s sense of hearing develops much before being born. While inside the mother’s womb, he or she can hear the mother’s lovely voice even the outside noises and sounds. The baby’s ability to hear very well helps speech and brain development.
Interaction like reading, talking, and playing together can help our kids’ learning to be fun and easy. My little girl’s favorite indoor activities when we are playing are singing, sorting, stacking, and chasing each other. She laughs hard whenever I catch her. We sing “Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?”, “Eensy Weensy Spider”, “Six Little Ducks”, and song from The Fresh Beat Band.
