Discover your baby’s personality
When you open up to your baby and look for everything he ‘tells you’ with his body language, you get a very good idea of your baby’s personality. By keeping track of which skills your baby chooses after a leap, from among the many new possible skills listed in each section of ‘The Wonder Weeks’, you get an even better picture. Some parents want to check off as many skills as possible. Don’t do this. This is like expecting an athlete to master all possible sports at once. Developing skills takes time and practice. The intention behind each list is not for you to check off as many new skills as you can, but to see what your baby’s preferences are.
