ABC Wednesday, R for Rattling Baby


Some toys are very simple and give as much joy as the most expensive gadgets. See how the baby moves the empty box from one hand to the other hand and back again.
The baby is my youngest grandchild, but you've probably guessed that already. Here she was almost 11 months old.

 With thanks to Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC. For more interesting ABC posts click on the logo in the sidebar. This week we are looking for words beginning with R.

I've long noticed that one year olds are more satisfied with the boxes and the wrapping paper than the presents inside!

OK..Granddaughter! (I might have misidentified her in my previous comment about the header shot ;>)! She is adorable and you are so right about babies not needing fancy toys.

So sweet Wil.
I love the expression on her face when the box didn't make noise any longer.
Wouldn't it be fun to be able to get inside these little ones heads and know what they are thinking?

Wonderful video. Thanks for sharing.

Sometimes the most simple toy can be the most fun.

what a beautiful child! And I love your header picture. Yes the simple boxes and kitchen utensils seem to give children so much fun.

Aw, a beautiful sweetheart. She knows money spent on toys is not the most important thing for discovery, fun and joy! :)

Ah, so sweet! Babies are the same everywhere, aren't they?

She is a clever thinking baby!! The mind is concentrating on the sound and she seems to have guessed it right that an empty box is no fun and makes no sound!! Smart child!! Loved that video!!

Gattina said...

I agree, the most simplest things are often the best toys ! That's just like with the cats, they love the box and not the toy which is inside, lol

Oh, she's wonderful, Wil, so smart and so pretty! It's true, at that age, children are fascinated by almost everything, and don't need expensive toys to keep them busy. I always remember my mother letting little ones play with the lids from her kitchen pots.

My grandgirls used to like to rearrange my pots and pans and use them as drums. What beautiful blue eyes she has.

Hello Wil,
As it looks like right now, we may (tentatively) be able to meet Monday May 27, because that is after the weekend we are in Rotterdam.
You asked me to call, but I do not have your phone number. If you rather give it on my email
Jeannette.Coevorden1@yahoo.com
Also I would need directions (we're coming from Voorburg -Rijswijkseweg) on Monday).
Hope our plan will come together:)

To answer your question about Holistic medicine- it's just using natural cures for illness instead of going to doctor and getting drugs.

That is so cute watching her play and kind of experiment with sounds.

This is positively adorable!

Yes, it doesn't take too much to entertain a baby, or even a small child. They would rather play with pots, pans and lids, or big old cardboard boxes.
