So, she put her hands together and clapped her hands. She makes a little clapping noise and everything. She started it on her own on Saturday (April 4th), and has been happily clapping her hands since then.
Vin and I really didn’t try to actively teach Allie to clap her hands. We only spottily sang “If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands”. Somehow, she figured it out. Allie had been banging two objects together (one in each hand) for weeks now, and had also been holding my hands and making them clap together. Maybe it was research? Whatever the case, let’s sing together and Allie will clap:
Tepuk Alya pandai
Mama upah susu
OK. Now you may applaud. 🙂
