  • Mine:
    *Babbles a TON...talks to anyone who will listen!
    *Tries to tear peoples faces off (lol)
    *Does the "army crawl" and is now getting up on all 4's and rocks back and forth
    *Eats baby food...Stage 1 and 2
    *Recognizes her name when called (most of the time)

    I hope that was what you were talking about! lol, as far as what she is doing right now, heh, she is terrorizing my living room!

  • BabyCenter.com has the best milestone charts. They show you what skills most 6 month olds have, what skills they are mastering right now, and what skills are just emerging.
    http://www.babycenter.com/0_milestone-chart-1-to-6-months_1496585.bc

    Just remember, don't get caught up in comparing your baby to the chart. Use the chart to spot problems (your child is several months behind in a skill) and to figure out what types of toys and games will help those emerging skills. Enjoy your baby; don't compare him to others or use the charts to brag about him.

  • If you have What To Expect The First Year, it does the same thing as Baby Center.
