Each day brings something new for your five-month-old. With increasing fine motor skills, your baby not only sees things, but reaches, grabs and tastes them, too! Offer a variety of safe toys in different shapes, sizes and textures.
She can reach out and grasp toys
He smiles at other babies—and his own reflection!
She can now "multitask"—for example, babbling and reaching for something at the same time
When offered a toy, he adjusts the position of his hand to accept it
She can roll from belly to back
To explore his world, he begins mouthing objects
