8 to 12 months
Becoming a Mini Version of You
Your child is beginning to do more and more things that resemble adult behaviour. They might hold a ‘conversation’ with you (while speaking in gibberish), explore objects by pulling, pushing, and banging, follow simple directions, and have a longer attention span. These few months are truly exciting to witness changes and growth happening so quickly..
During these months, your child will enjoy imitating things that they see and hear.
Your child may be strong enough to pull themselves up into a standing position using furniture for support.
Your child will begin to display problem-solving skills like trial-and-error as they explore and play.
If they haven’t already begun, your child should be ready to eat solids at this age.
