  • I would say between 6 and 9 months? Probably closer to 9. :)

  • If she is doing just fine with everything else, I wouldn't worry. My 3rd child was definitely slower at everything than my older two, but it was like she was waiting to "master" something before she tried it. For example, she didn't walk until she was 13 months or so, but she went from taking her first step to running in about 2 days. She was slower to talk, but then had a huge language boom. They're all so different, try not to worry. The range of what is normal is incredibly wide!

  • I check the baby books. DS was 11 months DD was 10 for clapping. I did not note reaching for people...
