Expressive Language

The Beginning of Language

Your baby might not be able to say any words yet, but she's definitely trying to communicate. While newborns can only cry or fuss, your 3-6 month old has learned some new sounds. She may squeal when excited, or coo and gurgle when content, and will respond to those funny sounds (i.e. words) you make. As your baby gets closer and closer to the 6-month mark, she may even begin trying to copy your sounds, starting by babbling certain consonants, like "m" or "b." Listen closely, and you'll hear her babbling with the rhythm and tone of adult speech!

Has your baby achieved the following Expressive Language developmental milestones yet? If yes, check off all the skill(s) she has already mastered to date!
