We talk a lot on this forum about things all babies do - eating, sleeping, pooping, etc. I'm curious about how all of these eat-sleep-poop machines of ours are unique. What would you say at this point about his/her developing character? What is your baby's "thing?"
For us, DD is almost a year old now, and I think that she is particularly good at figuring things out in a kind of mechanical way. An early example: When she was 5 months old and just sitting up on her own, I would often sit her outside on a blanket with some toys. I tried to encourage her to lunge forward by putting her toys on the edge of the blanket beyond her reach. What did she do? She grabbed the blanket and used it to drag the toys to herself. It's been a recurring trend with her. She never EVER directly imitates or copies sounds, motions, anything. But she is SO savvy about figuring out how things work on her own and learning how to get her little hands and legs to accomplish what she wants to accomplish.
What about your baby??
