3 months old, week 3
Juli brought her hands together and explored her hands (fidgeting). She held a single (index) finger in her mouth instead of the fist. Rolled over to the side from back. Reached for the tiny rabbit or another object and explored it with hands and in mouth.
Practicing eye-hand coordination
Some things are taken for granted. We may have forgotten how creative we can be with ordinary objects in a room what we probably haven't thought of before.
For example, the balloon that Juli got on her first day of life had been floating purposeless in the air for months. Sometimes it could be creepy. One moment it wandered mindlessly in the family room, then next moment you'd find it in the bedroom upstairs.
Anyway, suddenly it had now played its purpose. Juli could grasp the string and practiced her eye-hand coordination with the balloon. Quite useful.
Juli had been fortunate to have an opportunity to meet some ASL natives and fluent signers in our daily ASL community, where she was exposed to different signing styles.
such a happy baby, indeed! See you later. bye-bye
An observable behavior showed that Juli smiled in response to Angela's talk last week. She appeared to detect an expression of Angela. This week again Juli smiled in response to a different signer.
