  • She'll start some "proto giggles" likely if you get her excited enough. She's likely still uncoordinated but will make "accidents" happen with dangling pull toys more often. If you put a small enough toy in her hand she can grasp it and bring it to her mouth. If you hold her on your lap to stand she'll enjoy squatting and standing with your help. She may arch her back or roll to her side if laid down on a flat surface. Smile far more often to induce your interaction.

  • Rolling over happened for my daughter around 4.5 mo....sitting up unassisted around 6 mo....crawling around 9 mo. and walking at 10.5. Right now your baby is likely smiling, maybe giggling, paying a lot of attention to her surroundings (mine loved Baby Einstein at this age...Baby Noah and World Animals were favorites). She can probably grasp a small toy in her hand. Those wrist toys are good at this age...you velcro them around the wrist and they rattle. She can probably punch and hit toys that are dangling above her (get some links to lower toys to her level for more interaction). Tummy time and time with you to get some exercise is very important right now...put toys in front of her or overhead to encourage her to reach for them. Practice standing and squatting with mom's help (on your lap). Practice rolling her over so she feels the sensation.
