At 11 month, DDâ€™s training shifted from mastering her fine motor skills to exercising larger muscles. We taught her to climb upstairs and downstairs, encouraged her to cruise while holding onto furniture, and allowed her to crawl excitedly from one room to another. She began to taste the fun of being mobile and independent.
Each baby is a unique individual and meets his/her milestone at his/her own pace.
During month 7, DD started to expand her attention-getting repertoire to include more than crying. She blew â€œraspberriesâ€ and babbled, sat and stood with support, objected when her favorite things were taken away, worked to get a toy that was beyond her reach, passed a toy from one hand to the other, and sometimes picked up tiny objects with her thumb and fingers. Her baby training in this month emphasized on more crawling, sipping, simple principle and language trainings.
At month 6, DD was using all her senses to explore and learn about this world. I encouraged her doing so by giving her opportunities to see, listen, smell, and touch in various and different ways.

Her fingers were getting more and more dextrose. She also began to show a strong attachment to us by preferring being […]

She could also raise her chest and support it with her arms. Her fingers were getting more and more dextrose. She began […]
Generally speaking, most babies begin to follow an object in a full 180-degree arc, from one side to the other, by three months. I noticed DD could follow a rattle by the end of her second month. She discovered her own hands as the most fascinating tools she could use. Her body also became stronger […]
Hearing is one of the earliest senses awaken even before birth. Therefore, any practice of fetal/prenatal education, such as reading to the fetus or playing music to it, is actually not a waste of time (see Fetal education in 4th month). This practice continued after birth. When DD first came to this world, her version […]
