Let me introduce myself .. I am 4-7 months old and this is how I move and use my body:

  1. “I'm so smart I use a shaky reach, but I am more aware that I want objects if they are colorful, shiny or food. “
  2. “I kick and push with my legs to make me move faster, and change directions.”
  3. “I grasp with one arm extended, other arm bent in a "fencing" position.”

Here are some ideas and thoughts of a 4-7 month old:

  1. “I reach out and grasp colorful objects.”
  2. “I can hold an idea in my mind; I cry if I don't get a change of position.”
  3. “I use my heels to push off and toes to flip over.”
  4. “I roll side-to-side and over to see more and recognize objects and people.”
  5. “I think about how to make things happen.”
  6. “I cry to make others aware I am "there."
  7. “I like to feel comfortable and repeat sounds and movements that are pleasurable.”
  8. “I feel the need to be sitting and pulling myself up holding hands.”
