one year baby milestones

When babies hit that one year mark, their abilities seem to soar. Here's what your little one may be doing at one year...
  • Understand very simple words that she hears often, like her name or "No" or "Let's go." She may not always follow -i.e obey the word, but she likely knows what it means.
  • Get into a sitting position on her own, even from a laying down position.
  • Pick up smaller items using her thumb and finger.
  • Use hand play: For example wave goodbye, play patty-cake, clap, or shush others with her hands.
  • Say one or two words that you can actually understand - mama, dada, kitty, and so on.
  • Maybe stand for a couple of seconds unassisted and probably she'll be walking a little while holding onto a table or other piece of furniture.
  • May be able to roll a ball back to you if you roll it to her first.
  • She might even be able to indicate simple needs with a gesture. For example pointing at her cup when she wants a drink.
  • See more 12 month milestones.
Keep in mind that milestones vary. What's normal for one baby is not always normal for another. Most of these milestones above have a range of about 11 months to 14 months, so don't be concerned if your tot seems 'behind' - she's not, she's just on her own schedule.
