1107 words - 5 pages

Section 1
I had an opportunity to carefully observe an infant who was 10 months old boy for about 2 hours in the infant and toddler classroom at Friends Center for Children.
Before entering the classroom, I washed my hands and left my shoes on the door step. You were not allowed to wear your shoes inside, because the kids are young and still crawl on the floor.
When I entered the room, it was a small room where few babies were sleeping in their cribs and some were ready for their snacks.

He saw me and gave me a big smile. The caregiver lifted him up from the crib and put him down on the changing table. As soon as she opened his diaper, he lifted his both legs up high and holds them with his small hands. As he was smiling to the caregiver he opened and closed his hands. He was wiggling his toes, and at the same time he was turning his head left and right. He started cooing and blabbering sounds. The caregiver started talking to him in a very soothing way. He was noticing and listening to her with his wide open mouth and eyes. She was encouraging him by talking and repeating his sounds. After she changed his diaper he started crying.

As soon as he saw his milk was ready, his hands started moving excitedly and bouncing up and down in her arms. She sat on a comfy pillow with the boy in her lap. He was holding his bottle with his both hands. While drinking milk he was looking at me and other friends. After drinking milk he started playing with a big block bead. He started banging the bead on the floor. He was sitting with his both legs wide out. He was leaning forward with his stomach to the floor to grab another bead. Then he started crawling across the floor with his hands flat on the ground and fingers spread wide. He crawled back again to the carpet area and started observing his other friends. Then he picked some alphabet shaped like crabs and put it in his mouth. He looked at his caregiver who was saying “no,” then he nodded his head and reached to get another alphabet crab.

The baby started bouncing and shaking his arms all around. He was sitting on the floor with his toys around him. At the same time his mom came inside to pick him up. He saw his mom and lifted his both arms with a big smile on his face. His mom picked him up and gave him a big hug. Then he was standing with the support of his mom and...
