Baby's always known who you are, but now he can really show it. You may notice him smiling and kicking when you make eye contact, or replying to your conversation with little gurgles. Talk with baby as much as possible to help develop his language skills — point out things you see, read out loud, sing to him, and do everything else you can to keep the conversation flowing.
[tip] During tummy time, roll a small, soft ball in front of baby. Simply reaching and grabbing for it will help develop him hand-eye coordination.
