From 6 to 9 months many babies start to say the first few words. Even if they don’t make a whole lot of sense they will babble away in a conversational manner and their facial expressions will be developing. They will certain cries for certain needs and they will react in certain ways to different members of the family.
In month seven and eight you can start to feed the baby finger food but don’t be surprised if they get pleasure from dropping it on the floor! Baby gifts of cuddly blankets or teddies will start to be firm favorites now and they may get upset if separated from them. They can also sit up without support.
At month nine they will start to grab at things more and become more active. He or she will delight everyone by waving goodbye and will master easily changing positions from sitting to crawling.
From month 10 to 12 toys that make sounds, have different shapes and colours will appeal to the baby. The baby will also love story time. He or she will mimic your gestures and speak simple words. The baby will also love stacking toys and filling up containers.
