Similarly when you make smiley face in front of them, they understand your action and quickly give you the reaction of smile. Same as when you laugh, clap or talk in front of them, they will respond your actions through smiling and laughing.

Basic Movements

When we talk about the basic movements of children, are mostly try to sit, try to crawl, try to touch. These are the best and lovely moments for parents to see their child active and energize. Babies normally in this age try to learn that, how to sit and how to crawl. Their physical activities are on top level, they just want to touch everything.

Even they touch foods and mash with hands, so their ability to understand things is also growing with them. Between the age of 4-6 months baby learn to crawl, their muscles are in full form and growing day by day. Baby development procedure is very amazing because of different learning skills, parents always want to see their child so active.

In this age infants just want to sit like others and just walk or run but they can not walk or run like others. So they try to move slowly with their hands and feet and starts crawling. Because these things really fascinate the babies, once they started crawling they don’t want to stop that part of learning. You can see every time they want just crawling without help, they like independently craw or role over the floor.

Cognitive abilities  

When its about cognitive abilities, they have really strong skills about recognition of things and persons. They will frequently identify the face and voice of their parents. They always want that parents should be around them every time. If parents are in not in room near them, they will understand it and will react and cry. So they have the strong sense of parents presence. Similarly they can frequently identify the taste of food that they eat daily. Whenever they eat something different they react on it with their face expressions. 

Psychological progress 

At this level because baby can not have so much physical abilities like they can not speak, ask for food. So due to lack of body activities they have lot of psychological abilities. Like they can not speak, that they need right now something but they are totally aware how to tell your mother and father about their need. Similarly when they want to change their pampers, they know very well that how to react with crying. Parents will be aware at that time, their baby is not comfortable and trying to show something. So action and reaction continuous at this level.
