The first year of a child's life is filled with rapid development physically, emotionally, mentally, and socially. Your baby is working hard to communicate and form a strong bond with you.
Children at this stage are beginning to assert their identity and do more things for themselves. Your child is working hard to balance the quest for separation with the need for attachment.
Children at this stage use developing skills to learn more about the world and the people around them. You will begin to notice your child forming relationships with others, needing less help, and displaying more awareness and confidence in his or her abilities.
