Month 6

Month 6

“I’m almost on the move”

Now I roll over in
BOTH directions
(front to back,
back to front)

Watch ME SIT
without support


If I am standing,
I support weight on
my legs and might

I’m starting to rock back
and forth, and start
crawling backward
before moving forward


imageMy favorite thing is to play with others, especially my parents
imageI know your faces and know when someone is a strange


Happy is the best way to be and I can respond to your emotions

Wow – I can look at myself in a mirror
