two days before maya figured it out, the occupational therapist was trying to teach her how to clap hands. this last month has been all about hands it seems. i've been trying to teach maya to use her hands more. grabbing, holding, transferring, waving, clapping. i've noticed that she is picking up things real quickly lately.
these days she is fascinated with the fact that she can put her hands together. she sort of rubs them together and stares at them. she opens and closes them and watches very carefully at the action. i happen to think it's awfully cute, but then again i am her mother.
maya below claps her hands, at nine months and three weeks old.
