  • My son starting clapping around a year and a half, he also sometimes grabs my hands to clap too. My son doesn't sit and spin, but he loves spinning things and sometimes stands and spins.

  • My daughter started to clap her hands about nine months and at ten months now, she grabs mune and makes me clap if I stop. She dosn't really "spin" but she does sit on the floor and turn in the opposite direction by scooting on her butt in a circle but thats as far as she goes. I am sure it's normal.

  • My last dd, sat on her bottom and used her feet to scoot herself along. She never crawled. We called it butt scooting!
