A prelude to record scratching
Nieve has a little 'activity center' she goes in to keep her entertained if Mom and I need a moment to do a chore around the house (or eat dinner, etc). She loves it- she can happily stay in it for up to fifteen minutes playing with all of the various stations designed to captivate infants.

If you hit the tiles enough times in quick succession a little song plays as a reward. Nieve has mastered making the song play and every time the tune starts she looks up from her determined whacking with a broad 'I'm so proud of myself' grin.
