Games babies play: Playing is learning
Crawling with one hand full
Pulling up to stand
Grasping small objects

Saying mama and dada (or the appropriate sounds if your language is not English)
Looking at objects you point at and call by name

Playing is learning is loving
Talk to Baby - call objects by their name

nd get the father involved. For too long children were considered the sole responsibility of the mother but the father is a very important part of the child's life. Fathers must develop a relationship with their children as this will be important later in life. Believe it not you can trust your instincts when it comes to children. A mother's instinct can often be the difference between good and bad. Example: if suddenly it becomes quiet and you have this feeling something isn't right. Trust your instincts because chances are you are right.
