We Are FAMILY!

“Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones you accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what.” ~ Unknown

 

Babies are born with the need to be loved.  No matter how big or how small ~ each baby needs the same things ~ love, warmth and comfort.  Comfort is the first thing that infants need from parents.  When helpless infants learn early on that their cries will be responded to, they also learn that their needs will be met.  When you comfort your child, she learns to feel secure, loved and valued.

Other family members, such as brothers, sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and close friends are also very significant in the lives of babies.  Your extended family may offer support in so many ways ~ financially, emotionally and physically.  They are often the only ones with whom you may feel safe leaving your children.

Babies learn a lot from songs and songs are wonderful ways to introduce your baby to those who are important to your family.  Below is a simple song you can sing to your baby to introduce her to those who will play an important role in her life.

Where is Grandma?

Where is Grandma?

Where is she?

Where is she?

There she is my darling

There she is my darling

And how do you do?

And how do you do?

 

  • Tune of “Where is Thumbkin”
  • “Grandma” can be replaced with any family member’s name.
