My LO isnt doing either yet :( Anything you did to help them clap and wave? I keep waving and clapping but no success yet.

acaudill75:DD2 is just over nine months, and is just starting to raise her hand in an almost wave. No idea when they are supposed to start, but I'm not worried. No clapping, but a lot of banging on the table.
haha yes! A lot of banging on the table...maybe I should'nt worry just yet. :)
DS just started waving this past week. And that is not consistent all the. Sometimes he will wave and other times he just looks at us like we are crazy! So we just wave at everything. When I am walking around the house with him we wave at the dog, at ourselves in the mirror.. etc etc. His clapping is a "form" of clapping. Whenever we clap he will bring his hands together then pump them up and down. I think he thinks he is clapping lol just not opening and closing the hands together. So close but really no cigar yet.
DD waves, but only when she feels like it. I'll say, "Say Bye bye, Claire!" And all I get is a blank stare.
No clapping here, either. I try to do clapping rhymes and songs and move her hands, but she doesn't get it. She really doesn't bang toys together either.
MariJ1008:DS doesn't do it yet either. But he's crawling up the stairs already..so I think he is a littler backwards..LOL. I have been trying to clap with him and sing him happy if you know it song, to encourage clapping, but he just laughs at me.LOL
Same for us! He is walking with his push walker, crawling, going up our stairs. If you tell him to dance or put some music on he "dances" but he hasn't learned waving or clapping yet. I just say the things I am doing while I do them. I figure he will do it when he is ready to. So for now I will just keep saying what I am doing. He will catch on eventually.
