From now on your baby sits up well. He moves around on all fours and holds himself upright by taking support from furniture and starts to walk.
He adores making a noise with objects, recognises his preferred toys and adores throwing them.
He starts to say his first 2 syllable words. He imitates your expressions and gestures.
At 8 months, he becomes aware that he is a different being to his mother and this is characterised by a feeling of anxiety.
