  • The best resource for baby milestones is the book what to expect the first year, it is the sequel to what to expect when you are expecting. I has it broken down by months. It is a very awesome to book to have for all sorts of developmental questions.

  • she's still really young. and the what to expect book isn't real acurate. if she's not grabing things by 9 months then you may be concerned
