Cause and Effect, Engagement and Persistence, Small Muscle Movement and Dexterity

Experiments by Your Baby Scientist

As your little scientist's Small Muscle Movement and Dexterity improve, she'll be conducting more and more complex experiments. Your baby will use toys and household objects as test subjects, finding out what happens if she shakes them, throws them, or bangs them together. As her Engagement and Persistence abilities grow, you may find some of these rather repetitive - how many times will she drop that block? - but she's trying to figure out Cause and Effect. Your baby's thinking, "If I drop the block, will it always fall? And if I throw it, what will happen?" So be sure to encourage her to experiment and explore as she wishes, as long as it's safe to do so.

Has your baby achieved the following Cause and Effect, Small Muscle Movement and Dexterity, and Engagement and Persistence developmental milestones yet? If yes, check off all the skill(s) she has already mastered to date!
