This past week we've noticed Skippy Jr. noticing his feet. . . he sits in the bath and stares at his feet, he pulls them out of the water to look, he stretches them so they touch the other end of the tub, he kicks the floating turtle thermometer, and last night we noticed him flexing and contracting his toes. . . towards the washcloth.
Let me clarify that. . . He was trying to grab the washcloth with his toes, and you know what? He got it once!
We can't get him to grab toys in front of him with his hands, but he'll grab for things in the tub with his toes. I'm sure if we were to encourage this behavior it could become a very good skill in the future. . . I'm just not sure how it would be helpful.
