The article reveals that learning baby's unique personality will help her personality bloom. The baby's personality blossoms during her first year, as she gradually learns to communicate with body gestures and sounds. A 9-month-old might vocalize as she reaches out to be picked up or initiates a game of peekaboo. When parents lovingly respond, she feels like a successful communicator, someone worth listening to. Parents can help develop their baby's confidence in herself by slowing down and tuning in to her personality. To help understand their baby and her unique way of adapting to the environment, watch her various responses to sounds, sights, and touch. This will help her feel appreciated and secure.
