Where is Thumbkin?

Thumbkin

Babies love music. It doesn’t have to be children’s music or lullabies either. Babies will love the music that you are listening too (just be careful of the volume). Babies also love to make noise. Your baby will love toys that they can grasp, pull or shake. For example, plastic keys, rattles or crib gyms.

Babies also love to hear you sing! You don’t have to be Mariah Carey; your baby will love your voice no matter what. Try making up a song for your baby with you and her in it. Babies also love to babble, coo and gurgle and love to hear you imitate them.

Here is a fun song to sing for your baby (this is my daughter’s favourite):

Where is Thumbkin?
Where is Thumbkin?
Here I am!
Here I am!
How are you today, Sir?
Very well. I thank you!
Run and hide!(
or Happy day,or Run and play)
Run and hide!(
or Happy day,or Run and play)

Where is Pointer?
Where is Pointer?
Here I am.
Here I am.
How are you today, sir?
Very well, I thank you.

Run and hide! (or Happy day, or Run and play)
Run and hide! (
or Happy day, or Run and play)

The ground work for speech is laid during your baby’s first year. Talk to your baby about everything you do and see. They will love it! Point out the caterpillar on the branch, identify your eyes, nose and mouth, talk about the neighbour walking their dog, and show them something red, yellow and blue. You are helping her learn and it’s also fun. As you introduce your baby to the world, you see it through their eyes. You will find that you are growing and developing too!
