Gary and I have tried to keep the toy selection as low tech as possible without being totally anal about it, so it’s pretty funny how much fascination Remy has with any thing electronic. The CD Player, the laptop, and anything else that appears to have buttons yet may or may not actually have buttons. Unfortunately, we need to break him of the tendency to pound on the laptop keyboards. More force does not equal better. How does one teach a 5 1/2 month old fine motor nuance? Well, we’re working on that.
With his systematic approach to self-learning new things, I would think that he’s destined to be a career of troubleshooting technology if it weren’t for his lack of patience when things don’t go his way after a few tries. He gets this from his Mommy, admittedly.
It’s fun to see his personality emerge.
P.S. Was just referred to this parenting blog by a Montessori trained Mom. Looks pretty good. I’m adding it to my links list on the right hand side.
