  • I can't really figure out how to explain this to you so please go turn on your vacuum and then shake your head. You can hear it with the ear that facing the vacuum and not so much with the ear that's not. It gives the baby control over his ears and he likes experienting with hearing. Like I said, I can't explain it vary well so try it out for yourself and you'll see what I'm talking about!

  • my son randomly shakes his head, like when we are in the car and he's bored I catch him doing it. I think it feels funny to him. But he also does other funny stuff like when he sees something he knows he isnt supposed to have, instead of walking up to it he acts like he is sneaking up on it! They are just discovering different things all the time and entertaining themselves. :) I love it!
