Funny Fantastical Activity Friday : Funny Faces
Always smiling at your baby? That is great! But how about sticking your tongue out, opening wide, big frown, or all those funny faces that elementary school kids are so famous for?! Break them out and start using that face to entertain that expressive little one.
Blip is an expressive little critter. He has several smiles along with a pouty face that revels any big eyed hound dog. Throw those in with his surprise face, countless crying faces, random funny faces, and one face where you can see his expressions melting onto a full out tantrum before he cries and you can see that no words are needed! It's fun to teach them more!
My birthing coach once said that mommys tend to bound with skin on skin, breastfeeding, and all the sweet things you see on Hallmark commercials while daddys tend to bound with play. They will even copy the funny faces of daddy first. I'm not sure of the science behind this and know we both enjoy feeding, cuddling, and playing with Blip. But he did start to attempt to copy his dad first, so this may be a fun one to let dad in on!
