Gideon Bits: Hands

It may have been that I was at the office too much when Felix was at this stage, but watching Gideon improve his grasping algorithm is simply amazing; he makes progress by the hour. We had a major improvement a day or two ago when he started not opening his hand once something is in it that he wants. He is now beginning to figure out that holding something at a distance from his mouth is often the best way actually to get that something in his mouth. I threw him off somewhat, however, by sticking a jingling fish bracelet on his wrist today. He was very annoyed to find that stuffing his hands in his mouth did not get the fish in, too, an unwelcome exception to the rules, just when he’d thought he had the whole thing figured out.

Nom nom nom.
