Language, Emotions, and Your Baby
Your baby is now starting to recognize your emotions using the tone of your voice and your facial expressions. Help her put a name to them by identifying her own emotions, saying, "You look tired; it must be nap time," or "You look so happy to see Mama; she's happy to see you, too." She's also starting to recognize that there's a word people often use around her, and that's her name! Use it often to help her connect to it, which will in time help her understand that she is her own person.
