This is Jackson "playing" with his favorite toy, the monkey rattle. OK, he doesn't actually get the concept of play and toy yet. There's no cause and effect recognition, and he doesn't understand us when we tell him to shake his arm to make the monkey rattle. But the kid loves to shake his arms around, the monkey rattles, and the adults get it. Plus it makes a great photo! Jackson does recognize the bears on his pack and play as objects to reach for, and this morning, he was reaching for my face and grabbing my lips. It's a start.
