Probably just being a paranoid mother here, but my 8 MO is constantly opening and closing his hands. He usually turns them towards his chest or tummy and just goes to town. He does it quickly... Like you would scratch an itch. We call him "sticky fingers" when he does it, but what was once a funny joke kind of has me a little worried now.
I really don't see a huge difference in him from his 6 month appointment to now as far as what he is doing. He was sitting up then, but not crawling, and that is still the case. He doesn't "dance", clap his hands, or really babble anything outside of the typical "AHH" screams. When I talk to my mom on the phone, she always asks what his new "tricks" are, and I feel like its been months since I had anything to say.
Anyways... Not sure if I'm just expecting too much, or am just a worried Momma. Do any of you have any idea or experience with this "sticky finger" situation?? Thanks!!
