    Gabriel's first steps

    Learning how to balance and take one step after another involves courage and good motor skills. That's why a baby's first steps is a significant achievement, which typically happens between 9 months to age 1. Karen delos Reyes' son Gabriel just turned 10 months about five days before this video was taken. 

    Finn's first giggles

    Mom Nikki Gil shared son Finn's "first time giggles." He was around three months here. "Nakakabaliw, [to be honest]," she added. A baby's first real smile usually occurs at around two months, which is also around the same time he learns to make sounds other than crying. Combine the two, and so here comes the giggles!

    Adalynn Riley's eating solids on her own

    Adalynn Riley started eating solids at 6 months old, too, but mom Alyanna Martinez did so through baby-lead weaning. Instead of spoonfeeding, food is prepared so that Adalynn Riley can use her hands to feed herself. "This must have been quite an experience for her having only had breast milk her entire life," the first time mom wrote. 

    Calen Asher's early rollover

    Calen Asher pushed his elbows on the mat and discovered that when he does that, he ends up lying on his back! "Two months old and can already turn himself!" mom LJ Moreno-Alapag said in the clip. Typically, babies discover this motor skill at around 4 months. Rolling over from his back to his tummy happens and vice versa may occur at about 5 to 6 months. 

    Athena responding to her name

    The moment when your baby already responds to her name is a big step. Babies typically recognize and respond to their name at around 5 to 7 months old. Rufa Mae Quinto's daughter Alexandra Athena was 6 months old in this video. "I call her Athena, and she knows her name. I [help] stimulate her brain all the time," the first time mom wrote.
