One of the best experiences you'll have as a mother is watching your new baby grow. You've probably heard that babies grow quickly; but you won't realize how quickly until you see for yourself. As your baby grows, she will also gain new skills. Many babies reach certain milestones around the same age, while some jump ahead or fall behind the norm. The most important thing to remember is that all babies are different. Crawling, walking, or talking sooner does not necessarily indicate greater intelligence, athleticism, or health than doing so later on.
