Was Your Toddler Like This At 7 Months

I usually post in the infant section, but was curious what mom with older children think. I am 28 and a first time mom. I have a son who just turned 7 months last week. Anway, he seems like a typical 7 month old. He's trying to crawl...he rocks on all four like crazy..he sits all by himself, rolls like a maniac and is very vocal. He's not too much into babbling...He does say mama...mummm but usually if he's fussing. He smiles and laughs a lot. My question is....did your 7 month old seem to look at objects a lot or stare? There are many times when I try to talk to him to get his attention and he is looking at random stuff....like the remote, the blinds, the dog, whatever, and he doesn't respond. He doesn't fixate one particular thing...it's like he just looks around. BUT, if I shake a toy or the dogs run through, he quickly redirects his attention to me. He doesn't respond to his name that much...very little. Is it too soon to worry? I guess I'm looking for reassurance that he's fine and normal. That someone else's child did the same thing and is fine.

Sounds normal to me :-) Babies tend to get fascinated by things and concentrate hard lol. Since you say you can shake a toy and make him snap out of it, I wouldn't be worried. (My oldest has a high-functioning form of autism and he would sometimes zone out for 1/2-1 hour and we couldn't get his attention or get him to look at us no matter what we did!, so if you are able to get himt snap out of it with a toy I think it's probably fine... my younger two did that at times and they don't have autism).

Thank you so much! I worried when I was pregnant, but I worry much more now.
