If I am thinking correctly all of our babies are in their 6th or 7th months. Let's do a milestone check-in! What has your baby mastered?

**Please keep in mind babies do things at their own pace! If your baby isn;t doing one or more of these things, that is not a reason to be concerned!!**



6 months

Turns attention toward sounds and voices
Imitates sounds
Rolls over in both directions
Is likely ready for solid foods (check with your pediatrician first)
Sits without support
Gnaws or "gums" objects
Can pass objects back and forth from hand to hand
Lunges forward
May start to crawl
Begins to babble and/or combine syllables
Can pull or drag toys/objects toward herself

7 months

Sits up unsupported
Pulls toys/objects toward herself with the raking motion
Lunges forward
Begins crawling
Babbles and/or combines syllables
May experience newfound shyness around new people
Waves "bye-bye"
Can stand while supported by something/someone
Bangs together objects/toys (like blocks, pots and pans, etc.)


I realize some are listed for both ages, lol. I borrowed these from this site:

http://www.sheknows.com/parenting/ar...mon-milestones

Is there any other milestones not listed that your baby has accomplished? Please share

Liam, turned 7 mos. on 4/6, is a yes for all except waving, crawling and sitting totally unassisted. Sometimes, he'll get really excited and throw himself backwards...but softens his fall by curving his back into a "C" shape lol! He holds his hips/upper body off the floor and scoots but hasn't mastered using his legs with the motion. Also, he is exhibiting shyness and tucks himself into me when he doesn't want to go to someone (new) else...it's sooo cute

Sits up unsupported Yes
Pulls toys/objects toward herself with the raking motion Yes
Lunges forward Yes
Begins crawling Not Yet, but she is certainly trying!
Babbles and/or combines syllables Yes
May experience newfound shyness around new people Yes, and like some of the other babies, this is not new for her!
Waves "bye-bye" Not yet
Can stand while supported by something/someone Yes
Bangs together objects/toys (like blocks, pots and pans, etc.) Yes

When someone reaches for Kyah while I am holding her she automatically grabs ahold of me with both of her arms/hands and clenches her fists tight onto me

Kyah knows the meaning of several words and sentences. For example she knows:

"you want milk" and "milk"
"daddy's home"
"daddy woke up" (he works 3rds so he sleeps a lot during the day)
"you ready to go"
"baby kisses"
those are just some of the ones she knows

Kyah knows the big yellow school bus! Every school day she watches ds and dd3 get on the bus. Then hen we wait at the bus stop for them to get home, the second she sees the school bus approaching she gets super excited! So sweet!
