As your baby’s fourth month begins, you will see some truly awesome changes. This is when your baby begins to:

  • Lift her head and chest when she’s on her tummy, and extend her arms.
  • Try to grasp objects with fingers and palm now that her hands are open.
  • Laugh out loud when tickled or during social games.
  • Show anticipation and excitement by breathing heavily.
  • Turn his head to find out where a sound comes from.
