Bubbles!

Paisley was feeling a little bored this afternoon, but she wasn't quite sure what to do about it. She wasn't quite tired enough for a nap, but she wasn't really up for any grand adventures either. I started looking around for something that would engage her attention without being too overstimulating. Enter the bubbles...
She really wasn't so sure about this idea at first. Especially when one popped somewhat close to her face. 

The bubbles definitely caught her attention and she tracked them with her eyes as they floated around the room. Occasionally I'd catch one on the bubble wand and hold it close enough for her to touch it. She actually wasn't a huge fan of that, because she didn't like it when they popped. 
Don't worry, she did eventually warm up to the idea, and I think it's one we'll be repeating. 
Bubbles are a fun new way to exercise those eye muscles. As the bubbles flit around the room on different air currents, the baby is fascinated and will follow them as long as they're within sight. They are also a great way to learn about cause and effect, since they have a very distinct and consistent reaction to any interaction. And, they're darn fun too!
