I kind of just waited until he was ready himself to start learning....
As soon as he showed interest in walking and talking though, I definately encouraged it....

Personally, I don't think that you are doing anything wrong. If it's working for you then continue to do it. With my son Cordell I let him "guide" me into when he wanted to learn. Of course, I always played games that would help him, but I mostly waited for him to indicate when he wanted to do things. When he was about 8 months my mother got upset because he wasn't crawling just yet. However, he crawled only for a month. At 10 months he started walking because he wanted a toy on the other side of the room. Never crawled again for any reason. He started feeding himself at 11 months. When he started taking his diaper off everytime he peed I started potty training. By the time he was in Kindergarten he was able to put together over 1,000 piece puzzles and create advance model cars with no help at all.

Grace is only three months, but if it's working then you must be doing a good job! Keep it up momma!

Like the other girls said - if it works, keep on doing it! Jackson is 2 1/2 and I work with him so-so. Since I work, I really don't get to spend too much time working on teaching him things. We more or less have a ton of fun when Dh and I aren't working. He can count, talk incredibly well, and knows all other sorts of things, but he isn't a brainiac! We live out in the country and spend a LOT of time fishing, playing, etc.

I say keep it up
