What’s It Like To Be Four Months Old?

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 02-11-2007

How I grow

  • When I lie on my tummy, I may roll from side to side. I may even roll
    over onto my back.
  • I may be able to sit with support.
  • I can hold my head up on my own. I can turn my head from side to side.
  • I use both hands to grab toys and other objects.
  • When I’m in the bathtub, I like to splash in the water. I always need to be held firmly so I don’t slide into the water.



How I understand

  • I may get excited when I see people I know. Sometimes I don’t like strangers.
  • I like some toys better than others.

How I talk

  • When you talk to me, I smile and squeal and coo.
  • I like to imitate sounds. I like for you to talk to me and make sounds to me.
  • I babble now. I make lots of different sounds.
  • When I am happy, I coo, squeal, gurgle, giggle, grin and laugh out loud.

How I respond

  • I like to look at myself in the mirror. Sometimes I smile at myself.
  • I like to be touched and held.
  • I may fuss if I am left alone. I get bored.
  • I may cry when you take a toy away from me. I may cry when you stop
    playing with me.
