Ruby was looking at the baby in the mirror and reached out to touch it. She seemed genuinely dismayed to discover that the Mirror Baby was cold and hard.
Since then, she keeps touching the mirror when she looks into it. Yesterday we sat in front of the mirror for a good ten minutes while she reached out to touch the reflection. She’s much more aware, and keeps touching and holding things, discovering how they feel and taste. It’s really cute. I can hold something out to her and she will notice it, grab it, and play with it.
Watching her grow is so fun.
