My daughter is almost seven months and she has her first tooth. Told back to front and front to back, she passed objects from hand to hand. She has developed her pincher grasp and gets all around the living room by army crawling, pushing, scooting, and rolling. She goes backwards in a walker and sometimes forwards too. She has sat alone for months unassisted. She hasn't mastered the babbling yet but she has said ‘ma’ a few times, and sometimes ‘ba-ba-ba’. She does say ‘ah-ah-ah’ like ‘no-no-no’.

This is very interesting information and I am happy to know that my baby is doing well for his age.
