Freedom of movement
After months of scrabbling around and trying to reach out for things, the next major change is just around the corner: The child is finally able to see much more of their environment while sitting down. The next big target is to be able to stay standing up, but this will require a bit of practice as the baby's sense of balance is used to a lying-down position. Still, if the toy the baby wants is in the other corner of the room, the baby needs to get there somehow! And so begins – with some children at an early stage, with others a little later – all the fun of crawling.
Understanding the world
Other people hold a special fascination – the baby likes to join in with social situations as much as possible. And even if you can't understand a word, the baby understands much more than you'd think. The baby's own name, Mummy, Daddy and the most important toy are already firmly established in the baby's own little world, and with a little practice one day words will flow from the mouth of the little linguistic enthusiast.
