Your little one seems to be heading on warp speed to his first birthday! New skills, new words, and new moves towards independence all weigh in heavily this month. Check out the milestones!
Behavior & Development
Nine months is an especially delightful age. Your baby is active, playful, excited about learning, cuddly and affectionate. His gestures, expressions and babbles tell that you are the most important person in his life. What milestones might your little one reach.
Curiosity is the focus this month. In the sake of discovery your little one may empty drawers, unroll paper towels, tear up magazines, unfold laundry. Besides a topsy-turvy house, what else can you expect with an eight-month-old?
Now that your seven-month-old can sit unsupported, a whole new world is open. And she embraces it with delight! What milestones might you see this month?
Your six-month-old is in a pretty good mood most of the time, interested in her world and is working on expressing her sense of humor -- in grins, giggle and belly laughs. What milestones can you expect this month?
An important developmental step for every child is potty training. Most children begin using
the toilet as toddlers, usually between 18 months and 3 years old.
A five-month-old checks things out three ways. She explores it with her hands, feels it with her mouth and looks at it with her eyes. Your baby explores head to toe -- literally!
Your four-month-old has entered the interactive stage and interact she does with her whole body! What else will she accomplish this month?
Whether it's because your three-month-old is more organized or you're more comfortable with each other cues, parents often describe this month as easier and the baby as a delight!
Your two-month-old has adjusted to life outside the womb and is ready to take on the world! He hits a mobile and it moves. This month is all about empowerment. Your baby is discovering that he can make things happen!
