Hand-eye coordination isn't all it's cracked up to be
Our baby bouncy seat has a toy bar over it and on the toy bar are dangly bug toys: a butterfly, a snail and a ladybug that plays “If you’re happy and you know it” when you pull the little ring. Last week Baby Evan accidentally pulled the ring and made the song play. “Great Job! You’re so smart! Do it again!” we praised him. He did not manage to do it again.
Today he figured it out. I’ve heard “If you’re happy and you know it” approximately fourteen time in the last fifteen minutes. I’ll give him another ten minutes to enjoy his amazing new talent before I smash the thing with a hammer find the tiny screwdriver needed to take the battery out. I mean, I wouldn’t want to quash his development or anything.
