Where Is Baby's Nose?

Babies love to look at faces! Hold baby up to a mirror or put a play mirror on the floor with her (always monitor baby closely around mirrors). Point to baby's nose and tell her how cute her nose is. Then point to it in the mirror. Repeat with your nose and then other body parts. Babies are enthralled with their reflection!
