Milestones

Making relationships

You might notice that:

  • I like to be with other babies and grown ups. I look at faces and move my arms and legs to show that I like to be with them.
  • I look at faces and can copy movements you make with your face, like sticking out my tongue, opening and closing my mouth or making my eyes bigger.
  • I can show you that I like you talking to me by moving my arms and legs, making my eyes bigger and opening and closing my mouth.
  • I can show you that I am interested in what you are doing by looking at and watching you.
  • I can show that I like you to hold me or cuddle me by snuggling up to you, smiling, looking at your face or stroking you.

How you can help me learn:

  • Let me copy the movements you make with your face, like when you open and close your mouth or open and shut your eyes.
