You and your baby have probably had oodles of fun in the last few months together. Some of it was likely informal, but perhaps other times you tried more structured games. If you haven’t, give it a shot. A 9-month-old should have the cognitive ability to play simple games like peekaboo, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. KidsHealth.org elaborates that “so big” is another game that kids could be playing at this age. Additionally, if you hide something, your baby might go looking for it. This shows that he/she has picked up on object permanence, as previously mentioned. It also demonstrates that your little one has a curious side and wants to solve the riddle.
