Like all babies, Noah loves his hands. I've been trying to teach him that his hands are more than just things to jam into his mouth, but he's been a little slow to catch on. I figured that it's probably because he doesn't know what else to do with them.

Over the weekend, I tried to get him to use his hands productively. He was able to hold on to his long string of toys and shake it around for quite some time. This kept his hands out of his mouth and was able to keep him entertained. Unfortunately, he eventually figured out how to hold on to his toys and stick his hand into his mouth.
