At two months of age, your baby will begin to notice and reach out to the world around her. She can see better now. She can watch a person or object moving directly in front of her. She is more alert and can respond to you more. The world around her is more interesting to her.
Your baby is gaining more strength in her neck and shoulders. This allows her to hold her head up better and to see more.
Your baby also may begin to make some new sounds. She may start cooing and making sounds like “ah-ah-ah” and “ooh, ooh, ooh.” And she may make squeaking and gurgling noises.
Your baby will try to bring her hands to her mouth. She will do this often. When her fingers reach her mouth, she will not be good at keeping them there. She will get better at this as she gets older. She can also tightly hold a toy, such as a rattle, when you put it in her hand. But she will have trouble letting it go.
Her movements are no longer jerky but grow smoother day by day. She may be awake more during the day. If she is an active baby, she may be moving all the time when she is awake.
