  • I turn toward voices.
  • I reach for toys and pick them up.
  • I can hold an object in one hand and put it into the other hand.
  • I briefly look for a dropped toy.
  • I pick things up and I shake them.
  • I turn objects upside down to get another view of them.
  • I may roll over from my stomach to my back and from my back to my
    stomach.
  • I play with my toes.
  • I may help hold my bottle.
  • I know my name.
  • I may play games with people I know.
  • I babble, squeal and repeat sounds.
  • I sit by leaning forward on my hands. I can sit with support.
  • I may be afraid of adults I don’t know.
  • I know the faces of the people who are around me a lot.
  • I may know what the tone of your voice means.
