My little girl is 6 months old. I can hardly believe that much time has passed since I first met her. She's turning into quite the little person. I'm amazed every day by how much she can do and how much I love her.
She loves paper, and especially tags. She will move like lightening accross a room to get at a piece of paper that has been left unattended, and chew it up if we don't stop her fast enough. I've been letting her play with board books, and she seems to like chewing on them well enough. I found something better while out shopping today, and had to grab it as a "half birthday" gift:
It is a set of 42 flash cards of letters, numbers and words, all attached together and marked for "6 months+". She seems to like it, and if it survives this "chew everything like mad" phase she's in, it's full of quite nice pictures to teach letters and numbers. The pages are all made of thick plastic, they feel like pages but stiffer, so it's easier for her to manipulate the pages than it is with a board book.
