Baby Hera is 2 months old!
Baby Hera’s milestones
The last eight weeks have passed by so quickly! At two months, Hera’s communication and motor skills have drastically improved. She doesn’t cease to surprise me with what she new things she learns every day. We are both learning about each other and so far, it’s been a great adventure. Here are some of the milestones she’s reached in the last month:
Interested in Complex Designs
Little Hera is interested in the world around her! She is starting to focus her eyes on bright, flashing lights, colors , and can track patterns with her eyes. She seems to be very aware of her surroundings and spends a lot of her awake time “observing” the things around her. This month, we have spent a lot of time traveling around the house to give her a chance to become more acquainted with the world she lives in. She is not yet reaching for objects on her own but is receptive to soft textures.
A Better Listener
Hera has started to look towards the origin of different sounds, one of those sounds being mommy’s voice! When I talk to her, she turns towards me and sometimes graces me with her beautiful little smile. I am not sure how many emotion’s she has developed yet, but it’s nice to feel that she is smiling because she is starting to possibly understand who I am. She is also interested in sounds around her but unfortunately this also means that she is more sensitive to it.
Communicating and Imitating
Hera is starting to communicate! Her words still sound like mostly cooing and gurgling but she does try to engage me in conversation. She tries to imitate sounds as well. I can’t wait to see whether she says Mommy or Daddy first!
