This month could be a red letter month in your baby's life, not just because he/she will be turning one year old but because he/she might take his/her first few steps anytime. Make sure you have your camera
or camcorder nearby so you can record his/her first steps. He/she might also love imitating what you are doing, so be very careful about what you do while he/she is watching. He/she might also oblige you with a kiss or hug when you ask for it. He/she will keep everyone on their toes and constantly entertained with his/her antics. If you have a pet
at home you need to be extra careful from now on as he/she is more likely to follow it around.
Your baby's check up with his/her pediatrician
will also be due this month. Be sure to discuss all issues that bother you, no matter how trivial they may seem. Don't worry if your baby hasn't started walking yet and is content crawling around. Each baby is different and your baby will start walking when he/she is ready.
