Gripping

Baby B has been able to grip objects for a while now, but we've always had to place the object in her hand first. But yesterday she took a big step and intentionally gripped a pink elephant rattle we held in front of her, first with one hand and then with both hands. Testing to see if it was just a fluke, we took it away several times and offered it to her again, and each time she'd grab at it to hold. Of course, her approach was slow and a bit ham-handed, but it was great to see her taking this developmental step! She's also taken to sometimes holding her own bottle; quite a long way from the frantic, flailing arms of three months ago!

Wow! They grow up way too fast. Congrats on reaching the milestone, Baby B!

That is an awesome milestone to only be three months old! There was a 3 month old baby in the office today and he was still wobbly headed and not very alert. I was just comparing him to pics of Baby B and he was no where near where she seems now. Now comes the fun part of grabbing stuff and then shoving it in her mouth!
