Hey everyone. My ten month old learned to wave on his ten month birthday. He would wave bye everytime we did. Now after two days of waving he doesnt want to wave anymore.

Is this something i should be concerned about that he just stopped doing it back?

It doesn't necessarily mean anything. Kids grow in fits and spurts. If there's nothing else you're worried about, then don't worry about this.

Keep modeling gestures!

Gestures are a great form of early communication, and the best thing to do is to keep modeling things like waving, pointing, clapping, etc.

A 10-month old is working on so many things developmentally - so much is "coming together" at that age, so he may have mastered that skill and now have moved onto something else that you haven't even noticed yet! The most important thing is to look at what other things he's doing. Sometimes when little ones acquire new skills, we see other things temporarily disappearing. Overall, though, look at his overall development. If he is starting to use other gestures, if he's babbling, and if he's making eye contact, etc., then that's great!

Also, remember that NONE of us imitate each other every time we see something done. What a boring world that would be! Babies imitate based on what they think is interesting!

All the best
