Tisha Landrum is a first year milestones photographer located in Camp Hill, PA. During the first year of life, your baby will grow and develop at an amazing speed. Her/His weight will double by 5 to 6 months, and triple by her/his first birthday. And she/he is constantly learning. Documenting these milestones with a local professional photographer will ensure that you have all the adorable, soft, squishy cuteness frozen in time for you to cherish for years to come.
What Are The Milestones?
Your baby will have many major achievements during the first year. These achievements are called developmental milestones. These important first year milestones include rolling over, sitting up, standing and possibly walking.
Smiling & Laughing
By around 2 months of age, your baby will smile in response to you! The sound of your voice or the sight of your face is often all it takes to trigger your baby’s irresistible grin. By 4 months, you can look forward to another sound, possibly the sweetest you’ll ever hear — your baby’s laughter. The best part is how easily a baby laughs. Silly faces, tickling, and peek-a-boo are usually more than enough to set off lots of squeals and giggles.
How different the world looks when you’re not stuck on your belly! Around 5 or 6 months, most babies can sit up with support — either by resting on their hands in front of them or by leaning on pillows or furniture. Babies can usually sit alone steadily by 7-9 months.
If you have an 8-month-old, you may want to put your gym membership on hold. You’re about to get plenty of exercise chasing your suddenly mobile baby around the house. By 9 months, most babies crawl using both hands and feet, though some babies never crawl, preferring to creep or wriggle instead. Crawling is not an essential baby milestone, and infants who choose to scoot or creep still tend to reach other milestones on schedule.
Eating Finger Food
Just when spoon-feeding begins to lose its luster, babies are ready to feed themselves. Between 9-12 months, babies develop better control over their hands and fingers, making it easier to grab small objects — like finger foods! Unfortunately, babies this age love to explore taste and texture, so food is not the only thing they’ll try to pop into their mouths. Environmental safety should, therefore, become a big parental concern at this age.
