Toys and Growing Up
Last night we had Adrianna on her play mat, which consists of a brightly-colored and patterned blanket with two bars over it with dangling toys. It plays music and lights up. Greg wondered if Adrianna would recognize the tunes that it plays if she randomly heard the music from the toy many years later. I wonder too. Even though babies don’t “remember” things from this age, surely it is still stored in their subconcious somewhere? They are taking in so much of their world right now. Even talking to them at this early stage in life helps their language development later, so it has got to be going somewhere. Greg came to the conclusion that even if she doesn’t remember the tunes, we will recognize them down the road and they will bring tears to our eyes as we remember her as a sweet, little baby.
