Peek a boo - you may not think she's really getting it, but it won't be too long before she will start pulling something up in front of her face to play it with you! Also, read to her - simple books with big pictures (Eric Carle was a favorite - especially Brown Bear, Brown Bear). You can lay down on your tummy in front of her while she's on her tummy and look at the pictures with her, pointing out stuff (see the bird? the dog says "woof, woof"). Walks are great too, outside if it's not too cold where you are or through the mall if it is. In the winter, my son used to love to sit by the window and watch outside. Our library has a baby "storytime" (called baby lapsit) that does cute little songs and fingerplays.
