Meet Kobe. He was born on January 30 at 1:35am. Here he is on January 31, when he is about 36 hours old. He is a developmental powerhouse waiting to explode. Already he is alert and trying to figure out how things work in his new environment. Most of his movements are uncoordinated or involuntary reflexes.
Almost Two Months
At 2 months, Kobe has already changed a lot. He’s lost that newborn look. Kobe now has more control over his body. He is beginning to interact with his world.
Look at Kobe! He can sit up and may begin to crawl. At home, he’s beginning to feed himself. He loves to play. At this age, most babies can roll over, grasp objects in their hands, and respond to their own name.
Watch out world, Kobe is mobile! He can get himself where he wants to go, and he’s so proud of himself. He loves to play peek-a-boo. He can wave bye-bye and blow kisses to his mom when she goes to work.
Happy birthday, Kobe! He’s cruising around the house, walking as he holds onto things. At this age, babies may take a few steps on their own. Although Kobe speaks only a few words, he can let his parents know what he wants with sounds and gestures.
