  • My sons loved when my husband read Three Little Pigs to them, and when he got to the "blow their house down" part he'd shake his head from side to side and make a warbling noise. The children went wild with laughter, it was the funniest thing. :)

  • Peek a boo is always a classic with my daughter. Reading once she hit 10 mo. she got hooked on books (2 plus hours a day of reading every day w/ her). We have a Snoopy dog (play dog on a string with wheels) and she loves to be chased by him in circles while I go "woof woof". I also take two items (two stuffies, trolls, etc.) and put one on each check and make kissing noises while rubbing them on her face she loooves this. Children are precious and soo cute!

  • They both LOVED ceiling fans when they were babies! Then, as toddlers, they liked to look through an empty paper towel tube at things.

  • My daughter loved butterfly kisses. She also once tried to rescue all the little stuffed animal puppies from any store we went to. She didn't want them to be homeless.

  • When I held my children I would sing a part of the song "Let's Go Fly A Kite" from Mary Poppins and swing them up in the air (still holding them, of course...lol) and they would just love that so much!
    They also loved playing peek-a-boo while getting dressed - it was the only way I could get the shirt on over their heads...lol.
    When there were no pools nearby and we didn't have one and the summer days were hot, I would fill the tub with tepid water and they would just play with their bath toys in there for hours! They didn't have to "bathe" which they thought was fun, just stay cool and play - they loved it!
