Lydia is at the stage of development where she has discovered her hands. She plays with her hands and will grab objects if they are touching her fingers. The next step will be reaching out for objects that are in front of her. (Right now, it is hard to tell if she is doing this on purpose or if the movements are random--probably the latter.) In order to encourage this, we have started putting her under her activity gym with toys attached to it. She really loves this and almost immediately starts smiling, kicking her legs, and flailing her arms around. Here are some photos of Lydia hanging out under the gym.
