Does your child...

Turn toward their name?
....all the time?
....some of the time?
....few times w/o distractions?
....not yet?

Do they wave hello?

Do they wave goodbye?

Are they reserved around people other than their parents?

Are they social butterflies?

Do they respond when you make different faces at them?

Do they recognize their parents?

Have they become fearful of people they have always know that aren't their parents?

Do they use any gestures to get what they want?

Turn toward their name? Well, we rarely ever call her by her name. She has about a million nick names. The poor kid will probably be 4 before she figures out what her name is lol. She can tell when we're talking to her and most of the time she will glance at us. If there is something interesting going on she will ignore us though.
....all the time?
....some of the time?
....few times w/o distractions?
....not yet?

Do they wave hello? No waving yet but she gets really excited to see people so she will flap her arms around and stuff.

Do they wave goodbye? nope

Are they reserved around people other than their parents? No, she loves everyone

Are they social butterflies? Yes! Very much so.

Do they respond when you make different faces at them? Yes

Do they recognize their parents? Yep

Have they become fearful of people they have always know that aren't their parents? No, she is very social. She has no problem being passed around to people she doesn't know.

Do they use any gestures to get what they want? She will lift her arms up when she wants you to pick her up. She also mouths my boobs when she wants to nurse lol.

....not yet? Not yet. He'll turn to any talking, but he doesn't seem to be responding to his name yet.

Do they wave hello? No, but he claps with pleasure when he sees a parent.

Do they wave goodbye? Occasionally

Are they reserved around people other than their parents? Yes (I love it!)

Are they social butterflies? He will let people talk to him and even occasionally hold him (if they've put a LOT of effort into befriending him), but once he's had enough or if he feels threatened, he will do anything to avoid eye contact.

Do they respond when you make different faces at them? He laughs at faces and has one hilarious face that he makes on his own.

Do they recognize their parents? Yes.

Have they become fearful of people they have always know that aren't their parents? He doesn't want to be separated from me, but he's not afraid of others (yet).

Do they use any gestures to get what they want? He puts his arms up to get picked up, but that's it.

....not yet? Almost always, unless distracted by something else (usually her big sister)

Do they wave hello? Yes, but not all the time. Usually when she is excited about whoever has just walked in the door (Nana and Daddy are favourites)

Do they wave goodbye? No

Are they reserved around people other than their parents? Yeah, but not as bad as her sister was at this age

Are they social butterflies? Once she gets to know you, yes! LOTS of smiles

Do they respond when you make different faces at them? Definitely.

Do they recognize their parents? Definitely

Have they become fearful of people they have always know that aren't their parents? No

Do they use any gestures to get what they want? She puts her arms in the air when she wants to be picked up, whacks things away with her hands if she doesn't want something, I'm teaching her to say "more please" or just "more" when she wants another bite of food and I THINK she said it yesterday for the first time. She calls mamma mamma mamma when she wants me to come and get her.

She claps hands when I sing an old Dutch action song and there is a bit when I say "Hands up high!" in Dutch and she usually puts her hands up.

Just making motions when you say something, I mean. That's really smart to put her hands up and possibly having a new word. I knew a little girl that put her hands up at Hallelujah, but that started around 8.5-9 months.

99% of the time she will. With distractions I usually just have to say her name more than once

Do they wave hello? yes she usually does this on her own. she even makes this little noise that is the same sorta pitch as when i say hi to her all cute.

Do they wave goodbye? yes when we tell her say bye bye

Are they reserved around people other than their parents? Friends she is, but not family.

Are they social butterflies? Not really...shes pretty reserved

Do they respond when you make different faces at them? yep

Do they recognize their parents? Yep she looks for daddy all the time, wanders through the house in her walking screaming "DADA, DADA" its "mama" when shes sad. She also points and makes noises at the puppies when she wants to see them.

Have they become fearful of people they have always know that aren't their parents? She was like this with my dad for a little bit but not for long

Do they use any gestures to get what they want? Yes, she points, or she just goes and tries to get it herself if shes in the walker.

She claps great, is starting to blow kisses (apparently that is what daddy is teaching her when im gone), and she plays a mean game of peek-a-boo. but we dont call it peek-a-boo we call it "wheres holland?" and when she uncovers her face we go "there she is!!" and she loooves it. she starts doing it with anything she can grab and cover her eyes with. Her books, her bottle, her bib...anything lol Oh and she just started "dancing" she bounces up and down to any music that comes on the tv no matter what it is or what she is doing lol.

She is still a terror during diaper changes, toward the end of meals, and when she is in the carseat. The car seat is the worst. It's all out screaming and crying so bad she starts to make her self sick. I usually have to stop and pull over a time or two where ever we go. And she'll have every toy and book and everything in the world in her lap to play with. She just hates it...Hopefully this will end soon. She does understand "no" and when i shoo her out of the bathroom while she in her walker... she throws a fit as she walks somewhere else.

sorry, lol i added on a novel at the end!

Do they wave hello? no

Do they wave goodbye? no

Do they wave randomly for no apparent reason minutes after you've asked them to? Yes. HAHA

Are they reserved around people other than their parents? For a while. It takes him a while to warm up to new people.

Are they social butterflies? Not really.

Do they respond when you make different faces at them? Yes. Laughs a lot.

Do they recognize their parents? Oh yes.

Have they become fearful of people they have always know that aren't their parents? MM sort of. People that he's known since birth but doesn't see very often make him nervous.

Do they use any gestures to get what they want? Does crying count? haha. seriously. he reaches to grab something and when he can't reach it he throws a fit. stomping his feet and crying. haha
