[MUSIC] So why don't we lay Parker down for a moment? Cause he's not sitting up by himself just yet. And let's just play a little game with scarves, we're just going to sing to him and play a little peek-a-boo. So, ready? Peek-a-boo. I see you. Peek-a-boo. I see you. There are some great games you and your baby can play together to help them with object permanence. Object permanence is when something disappears, and it comes back again. It may be where you take a scarf over your face and play some Peek-a-boo. It may be where you take a toy and put it under a box. Or a carton and show your baby that it's there. Can you find it Parker? He found it. So it's a great way for baby's to just build their memory, to build object permanence and really to explore and discover what they can find and where they can go. Babies at about seven, eight months start to be concerned that maybe you or the other loved ones are going into the other room, disappearing, but you always come back. So, these fun games really help them understand that baby and mommy disappear but then they come back again. [MUSIC] Yay. Well done Parker. Well done. You really went for it. [BLANK_AUDIO]
