Mirror Your Baby’s Expression

Mirror Expression (2)

You probably spend lots of time staring at your newborn’s face and making little expressions – wide open mouths, silly faces, sticking your tongue out. Adults tend to get silly around babies! But this little activity is almost the reverse of that, and is such a wonderful way to see your baby.

I simply held Veronika on my lap, her head cushioned in my hands, and looked at her gaze, trying to copy what she did with her eyes.

You can make wide eyes when your child’s eyes are wide, or blink when they blink.

Copying expressions is such an important first step toward reading facial cues and teaching emotional intelligence, and you’ll have an adorable time with this one.
