Baby's First Year of Life: Your Week-by-Week Guide

What's Happening with Your baby

Your little one may surprise you by initiating a game of peek-a-boo. To take full advantage of this new interest, you might also introduce a very basic hide-and-seek. This can be fun whether your baby still likes to sit in one place or is an early crawler. Hide behind the couch, but leave your leg sticking out so he's sure to find you. When he does, be prepared for lots of giggles and grins. This is just the start of a game your baby will enjoy for a long time.

Taking Care of Yourself

Call a friend this week to meet for lunch, a walk or a bit of shopping. What you do doesn't matter. Enjoy the time spent with a close friend. Bring your baby along for the outing or leave him at home with your partner or a capable sitter. Put the focus on enjoying yourself for a few hours.
