William attended his first summer camp last week- Kindermusik!
Kindermusik is a program that provides an environment of singing, playing and dancing for children. It encourages learning through music and play. Our instructor, Jill, was fabulous! She is so wonderful with kids and she taught me lots of things that I can use that will (hopefully) help promote William's development.
Things like really making an effort to describe my actions to William, like "I am putting the toys away" and "roll the ball." Also, implementing some "quiet time" in the house to relax and play in silence. Apparently babies need silence once in a while to process everything that has been happening. We also got to take home a CD and we've been listening to it non-stop!
I loved seeing all the interaction between babies!
William was such a trooper- he actually got sick mid-week but was better a day later.
He really enjoyed playing with all the new shakers, bells, balls, drums, bubbles, ribbons, scarves and many many other toys Ms. Jill brought with her!
I also enjoyed it- any excuse to get out of the house is a good one!
