11 months

Yesterday was MJ’s 11 month birthday. As usual I have lifted this list of 11 month developmental milestones from Stacie and the Twinkies.

90% of babies can…
get into sitting position from stomach yes  
pick up tiny object with thumb and finger yes  
understand “no” yes  
75% of babies can…
play patty-cake or wave bye-bye yes (she has her own version of bye bye,and I’ve never tried patty-cake.)  
walk holding on to furniture yes  
point to something to get needs met yes  
50% of babies can…
pick up a tiny object neatly yes  
stand alone momentarily yes  
say “mama” or “dada” discriminately not really  
say one word other than “mama” or “dada” sort of (“Kiii’iii” is usually said while looking at Simba, so I interpret it as “kitty”)  
25% of babies can…
indicate wants in ways other than crying yes  
play ball (roll ball to you) sometimes, mostly she hands it to me  
drink from a cup if I’m holding it for her, yes  
stand alone well for about a minute or so at a time  
use immature jargoning no? I’m not sure what this means  
say three words other than “mama” or “dada” no  
respond to a one-step command without gestures yes  
walk well just starting  

All the milestones are from “What to Expect the First Year” which pulls milestones from the Denver Developmental Screening Tests and the Clinical Linguistic and Auditory Milestone Scale and lists them at the beginning of each chapter.

  1. If I recall correctly, ‘immature jargoning’ is in reference to that secret language babies develop to chatter to themselves. Punkin carries on long monologues in this language all the time, and I really wonder what the heck she’s talking about.

  2. hoping to see a video with her trying to say dada/mama 🙂

  3. Amazing the desire to chart our child’s personal growth. Both of mine talked early and in full sentences but did not walk till 14 months. They still preferred to be proverbially carried around.

  4. Ahh it’s so lovely when you know they’re doing ok.
    My two walked between 10 and 11 months and talked pretty early. It’s amazing to watch isn’t it. 😀

    Oh, and what does IMAO stand for??
    I’m a bit dense sometimes. 🙂

  5. Looks like our babies are one day apart! My Sophie’s bday is November 16th. COOLNESS! Seems like they’re at about the same level on the milestones too!

  6. Isn’t it a relief to have a healthy bright kid? Yeah Mama!!

  7. We’re still waiting on the walking! Late walking runs in our families.

  8. what they *don’t* tell you is that charting *begins* the onset of grey hairs. if none of us charted, we’d not get grey until much later in life.
    i think i read that on one of the milestone sites – i think it had a chart of what 37 year olds should do, and i was checking myself on it. i’m only in the 50th percentile. dang. another grey hair, too.
    but! well done!

  9. Sometimes it’s hard to discern what she’s saying. She may have more words than you know. And the REAL fun starts at 12 mos., lol… Just joking, but when they start toddling it all changes. 😉

  10. Yo! Smart little sucker your got there. Congrats MOM! They all develop so differently and it always amazes me. Our first, little miss smarty pants, was walking and talking at 9 months, she knew her colors and shapes at a year and half and talked full sentences by then…no joke. She is still quite bright however our others display brilliance in other areas besides diaper filling and boo boo creation.
