At what age did your little one start waving bye bye and clapping their hands?

Hi TinaMarie my ds shares the same bday as your little one hes not doing either yet but when we tell him to clap he will bang on his thighs. We are trying to teach him so big and he has no interst in that either. He is getting into sitting position all by himself and will cruise around his play table. He is still not pulling up to standing or crawling. He will get on all fours and rock. He is getting there I'm not ready to chase him around the house yet, where did the time go?

My dd is 9 months old now and has been clapping her hands for a couple months now. She started with banging her closed fists together, then eventually opened one of her hands with it, and soon after was clapping with both hands open. But she still hasn't waved or anything. We've been trying to teach her but she hasn't caught on yet. :-)

LisaB- Angelina is not clapping yet but she will pat her legs like you said. I keep working with her on it! Has your son started talking alot yet?

TinaMaria-I was getting a little worried because Kyler wasn't talking at all- I mean nothing then within the past week or two he has become very vocal. No words yet but atleast he is babbling. Any words for your dd?

My son started clapping around 6 months. We think he waved the other day, and he will be 8 months old next week. Even more exciting --- we started using some sign language with him. Well, mainly just the sign for "more". We stop midway through feeding him his solids and ask him if he wants more and do the sign for more. We have been doing this since he was 6 months old. About 2 weeks ago we were feeding him cheerios and he signed for more. He has since signed for more three other times. Amazing.

She really has not talked either. I was getting worry, she recently starting babble more and says something that resembles mama but only if she is screaming at the top of her lungs..lol. Does that count? lol

My son could not clap until he was 13 months old. He would put his hands together and shake them up and down & that used to be his version of clapping. I was worried also but he is advanced in other areas so I remind myself that everything is balanced as far as his development is going.

My son started to clap his hands and wave bye bye at 6 months. He is now trying to crawl at 7 months and he will get up on all fours and rock back and forth and today he did actually put one knee forward and then gave up lol. He talks quite a bit well I mean he says a few words...at 5 months he said "mum mum" and now he says "uh oh" and "ouch" so he is just a rotten little guy. But he has cousins that are just 2 days younger and they cannot clap or wave or say anything yet so it all just depends on the baby I guess...they all just develop at their own speed.

Sophie just started waving and saying hiya about a week ago at 8 months. She doesn't wave and say bye yet but when I called on the phone and said bye to her, mum said she waved to me. She also claps now. I wouldn't worry if she's not waving or clapping yet, they all do things at different ages and she'll do it when she's ready. I'ld say screaming mama does count as talking but you may want to pretend its dada!

I have not been too concerned that she doe not say a whole lots, she always laughs and babbles. I read somewhere that if they are "ahead" physical they tend to talk later. I do not know if that is true but she definately seems to consontrate on the physical things. She was crawling and pulling her self to stand a week before 6 months and now she is cruising and stands for a few seconds alone. So I guess they do things on their own time. I was just curious about the clapping because I have been trying to work with her on it and she looks at me like I am crazy..lol

I think you maybe right about the physical/talking thing. Sophie is the other way round - she started to speak very early at 3 months but has been slower on some of the physical things - she just learned to sit up on her own and crawl at 8 months. When she was learning to sit up and crawl she hardly spoke, like she could only concentrate on one thing at a time - must have inherited that from DH!

my 8 mo old son doesn't wave, but he started clapping his hands just a couple of weeks ago.
