Julia is now reaching for things with one hand, and her grasp is much more accurate than it was only three weeks ago. Today I saw her holding a toy in one hand and grabbing for something with the other!

Julia has begun reaching for things that aren’t necessarily within her grasp, or intended for her. She’s very interested in glasses when we’re drinking something, but she’s frustrated by anything she can’t get in her mouth in a satisfactory manner. She also has begun stroking my skin while nursing, and today I completely melted when she reached out and held my face, putting her palms on my cheeks.

Although Julia rolled from front to back for the first time at six weeks, and was rolling back to side in October, she hadn’t rolled at all recently until today, when she started rolling three-quarters of the way from her back to her front, then back again. Click here for the full story.

Julia babbled for the first time tonight, saying “ah-ma-ma-ma.” It’s the first step to first words, but for now she’s just putting syllables together; she doesn't yet associate “mama” with a person. She’s also been losing lots of hair recently; it’s now thinning on the sides and remains thick and at the nape of her neck and somewhat on top.
