Fine and gross motor development during the first 6 months includes a number of important milestones. During my observation of Sydney, she accomplished the following fine motor skills. When a rattle was introduced to the observation session and held in front of her, Sydney turned her head at the sound of the rattle and followed the rattle with her eyes. In addition, when rattle was placed on the table, she picked the rattle up and immediately raised it to her face and to her mouth. Sydney was also observed shaking the rattle and was capable to passing the rattle from her left to right hand.
