Most parents would give anything to know what is going on their baby’s brain, especially during those never-ending crying spells. This developmental milestone shows what he/she is picking up on. KidsHealth.org reports that babies might be following the pages as you are reading him/her a story. (He/she doesn’t need to be at the word and letter stage yet.) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists another example of how babies at this age might follow the path of an object as it falls. This one is easier to miss because you might be more preoccupied with that falling sippy cup than you are with seeing whether your baby is paying attention to it drop to the floor.
