Being a mother is not easy. There are lot of concerns that a Mom should always think about for her kids.
Indeed, I have a hard time adjusting now that I have baby David, but it doesn't mean that I don't do anything for him. As a matter of fact, I always do my ultimate best to give him the beautiful life that we, my husband and I, want for him.
When it comes to choosing David's toys, I am particular of that. He is 11 months old now and it is not appropriate to give my baby small toys because I am afraid that he might swallow them. It gives us a big problem if that will happen.
I am buying bigger toys for him. I love seeing him playing with those toys because he is always on the curiosity side. As I always observe him in playing his toys, I have found some efficacies that the toy-experience gives him:
1. The avenue to identify objects.
I am amazed of David's knowledge of formulating concepts of him holding his toys. He alwyas look for it and when I try to keep them, he will cry. He identifies his toys by name and he is that happy playing with them. He can distinguish the colors as well.
2. The chance to develop his motor skill.
Because of David's love of toys, he moves, throws, bangs, dismantles, them. That I find it a good sign that he shows development of the movement of his senses, especially to his physical body.
3. The curiosity he gets form observation.
David's intuitiveness and his sense of thinking through his hand gestures and action, I find it that he is curios of how or when to move his toys. He has his ways of moving or holding them. That is a good sign of curiosity which I can clearly see in him.
4. The happiness that can never be stolen.
Every time I give David his toys, he is overwhelmingly showing signs of happiness. He can wait to do something for his toys. He wears a big smile and I am in the observation side as I see him play.
5. The formation of sounds based on what kind of toys.
David forms sounds. Just like his motor toy, when he makes them move, he utter sounds as, "Broom, brom..." and so on. In fact, I never can't spell much those other sounds that he formulates based on the kind of toys he is playing. I am just so curious of David's knowledge of sounds too. It comes out naturally.
Toys bring all sorts of learning to children. But mothers should select the appropriate toys for their age. Not all toys are friendly for their babies.
David has showed lots of curiosity and development because of playing with his toys. That kind of experience can't be stolen by anyone. I am happy that my baby, David is now developing, learning and growing.
