month 3: where she’ll go

Lily is 2 months old today! In order to prepare her for her journey to the three month mark, here’s a look at what she’s expected to do over the next 4 weeks or so.

According to What to Expect the First Year, by three months, Lily …

… should be able to:

  • on stomach, lift head up 45 degrees

… will probably be able to:

  • laugh out loud
  • on stomach, lift head up 90 degrees
  • squeal in delight
  • bring both hands together
  • follow an object held about 6 inches above baby’s face and moved 180 degrees – from one side to the other, with baby watching all the way

… may possibly be able to:

  • hold head steady when upright
  • on stomach, raise chest, supported by arms
  • roll over (one way)
  • grasp a rattle held to backs or tips of fingers
  • pay attention to an object as small as a raisin

… may even be able to:

  • bear some weight on legs when held upright
  • reach for an object
  • keep head level with body when pulled to sitting
  • turn in the direction of a voice, particularly mommy’s
  • say “ah-goo” or similar vowel-consonant combination
  • razz (make a wet razzing sound)

We’ll see how this month goes! As mentioned in her 2 month milestone post, she’s already doing some of the things on this list, so let’s see what else we can cross off on 8/11!

I’ll post pictures tomorrow, most likely. We’re headed to Baltimore today and hope to get some time at the Inner Harbor or out and about in the city, so hopefully we’ll have some good ones! Until then, have a GREAT day!
