Mirror, Mirror on the Floor

Lately, I have been trying to get Hail acquainted with recognizing himself instead of just seeing himself as a separate baby in the mirror. This has provided me- as well as him- with a lot of entertainment. He hasn't quite figured out that the baby in the mirror is him, but he has learned that the baby does what he does. He really enjoys a good conversation with that baby too. It's cute to watch him babble to that baby as if the conversation is ever changing. His doctor says that he will learn to recognize himself and I believe that he is getting there. Any time we walk by a mirror, he has to stop and say hello. If I ask him if that is my handsome Hail, he smiles and laughs. He's really working on it. He's developing like crazy and it's such an amazing thing to watch how quickly he grasps things.

The other day, he learned cause and effect. He stuck his foot in his mouth (literally) and bit his toes. He was stunned because he didn't know why his foot hurt. Then when he did it again, he realized that he was doing it to himself. I was shocked at how quickly that sunk in. But then again, a little pain teaches a quick lesson :)
