I took this video of Ruby (just a week shy of 6 months old) recently and wanted to post it, because it demonstrates one of the things I love most about RIE or just the idea of letting babies have uninterrupted, self-directed play time with simple, open-ended toys. I see Ruby working hard reaching for a toy she wants. She tries over and over, a few times she bats it away by accident, but she keeps trying. She finally gets what she wants, she doesn't want a pat on the back(like I would) or my approval, she just wants to chew on that darn thing! When I see this type of "play" I can't help but think/hope that these are life lessons she is learning that will hopefully stick with her for life.


Oh, and I apologize for my Darth Vadar breathing! : )
