~BABY MILESTONE 6 to 9 months~ Between 6-9 months of age, babies grow and develop rapidly - it's so much fun to witness!😃 These months will fly by so be sure to savor them while they last. Here's what you can expect: 6 Months 🔷️Gross motor skills: Sits up on his own -- without being propped -- if you get him into a sitting position. 🔺️Fine motor skills: Transfers objects from one hand to the other 🔵Language skills: Babbles in a way that can sound tantalizingly like real words -- "mama," "dada," "baba." ◾Social skills: Responds to you by looking toward you or smiling at you when you say his name. 7 Months 🔷️Gross motor: Tries hard to move forward by scooting or "army crawling," or rocking back and forth on all fours. 🔺️Fine motor: Begins to scoop up small objects using a "rake grasp," sweeping with all the fingers 🔵Language: Imitates sounds you make to him, like raspberries, babble talk, and laughter. ◾Social: Starts to enjoy eye contact and games like peek-a-boo. 8 Months 🔷️Gross motor: Gets into a sitting position on his own. Babies who do crawl usually start about now. (Not all babies crawl -- don't worry if yours doesn't.) 🔺️Fine motor: Plays at picking up and dropping objects. 🔵Language: Some babies start using babble words like "mama" and dada" to refer to people. Don't be surprised if he calls both parents "dada" for awhile. ◾Social: Learns to understand object permanence -- that things still exist when he can't see them. That may mean the start of separation anxiety, but don't be concerned. Babies grow out of this phase. 9 Months 🔷️Gross motor: Tries to pull himself up to a standing position using furniture and other objects. 🔺️Fine motor: Has mastered the rake grasp -- picks up objects with all four fingers engaged. 🔵Language: Uses a lot of gestures like pointing, shaking his head, and nodding to communicate. ◾Social: Stranger anxiety has kicked in. Babies who were happy going to a trusted sitter may suddenly melt down. This, too, shall pass. . .
