Sigh…Ryan’s first birthday is just around the corner.
By ten months, Ryan…SHOULD be able to:
-stand holding on to someone or something – You bet.
-pull up to standing position from sitting – yup.
-object if you take a toy away – yup.
-say “mama” or “dada” – yup.
-play peekaboo – yup.
-exchange back-and-forth gestures with you – yup. We take turns waving and clapping.
…will PROBABLY be able to:
-get into sitting position from stomach – yup, he’s finally starting sit on his own now too.
-play patty cake or wave – yup.
-pick up tiny objects – yup, we have to watch out for him now. Everything and anything is picked up and put in the mouth.
-cruise – yup.
-understand “no” – yup, although he cries everytime we tell him “no.”
…may POSSIBLY be able to:
-stand alone momentarily – I think he has for a brief second when he forgets he needs to hold onto the couch.
-point to something to get needs met – not yet, at least not that I’ve noticed.
…may even be able to:
-indicate wants in ways other than crying – not sure here.
-play ball – it’s more like roll to him and he chews it. Alex and him play this game all the time.
-drink from a cup independantly – he’s still on a bottle but he can hold that on his own.
-stand alone well – not yet.
-use immature jargoning – there’s been a couple times he’s said more than the “baba” and “mama” sounds, but it’s not frequent yet.
-respond to a one-step command with gestures – not yet.
-walk well – not yet.
