She can stand straight for a few moments and jiggle on the spot if you stand her up, hold her hands or hold under her arms. –Yes!
Her communication skills are also developing fast.
She’s sensitive to voices and intonations, and will turn to look for the face of the person who is talking. –Yes!

She can make herself understood to you, especially if the message refers to hunger! –Really? Ok!
She is aware of the sounds she can produce and is fascinated by her own babbling. Listen to her and encourage her. –Really? Ok!

Your child can be a bit cranky. Take her in your arms and give her a cuddle. You can give her gums a gentle massage to relieve her pain. –Really? Ok!
