Valerie is now smooth to crawl, now she will start by learning to balance on her hands and knees. Then she will know how to move forward and backward by pushing off with the knees. At the same time, it will strengthen the muscles that will enable My Baby to run.
My baby's personality is really emerging now. She may be very social, granting broad smiles to everyone she meets, or a little more shy, hiding her face when well-meaning strangers try to engage her. She'll gesture for your attention and may wave goodbye when she sees my head for the door. She's also developing a mind of her own, which you may run up against when you try to put her in her car seat or stroller.
