Your Baby's Hand Control

9 to 10 months

Your baby may begin to point with her index finger. She probably isn't pointing at anything in particular, but the fact that she can make this motion indicates that she'll soon be able to perform the pincer grasp -- the ability to pick up tiny objects with her thumb and forefinger. This skill, attained around the tenth month, is the culmination of small motor development in the first year.
