Your baby's 35th week
As you head off to your little one’s ninth month check-up later this month, expect to be questioned about her development. Most children this age are able to wave "bye-bye," although chances are she’ll not perform for the doctor when you want her to.
She’ll hit another milestone any day now. The development of the pincer grip, grasping a small object between her thumb and forefinger, allowing her greater freedom in self-feeding. Help her master this skill by introducing small, easy to eat foods like Cheerios, or small pieces of soft, cooked fruits and vegetables.
You’ve waited months to hear it, but now you’re soon to hear that adorable little voice address you by name. She’ll be able to say Mama and Dada now and may even be able to say another familiar word. Be sure to record these first words even if only by writing them on a calendar on the day they’re first uttered. You’ll treasure these memories for life.
