Music Table 6-18 months

For Christmas, Mammy and Grandfather gave Kyle a leap frog music table. We took it out of the box and played with it with him, he cried in fear. He was also three months younger than the recommended age. It has sat in his room for months now. All the bigger kids that come to play love it, but still it has been beyond Kyle.

In the last few weeks, Kyle has gotten better and better at sitting independently and he can do it for up to a half an hour at a time, at which point he just gets really tired of it. For the first time last week, when I went to visit neighbors I did not have to hold him the whole time and I could put him down to eat lunch. It's been the best new development yet.

The music table was still to big for him because when he would sit under it, it would be about the level of his head. I would hold him to stand up to it, but then I have to be there the whole time. On Thursday, I had a brilliant idea....

That's right, I took two legs off so it would make an "A" and he could sit under it and play. Periodically we rotate sides. I'm in heaven.....

This is the video I got of him playing with it that Thursday morning.


Thanks Mammy and Grandfather.
