Mini Milestone Package

Fresh 48 at Carilion Hospital in Radford, Va

"A new baby is like the beginning of all things... hope, a dream of possibilities." Eda LeShan

Here are the milestones of your precious new baby. Moments you will want to capture and remember forever. There is no perfect time because every baby develops differently but here is a pretty sturdy guideline. Things to keep in mind when scheduling these appointments are how quickly they can tire. You will want to schedule after their nap time so they are fully rested.

3 months - Baby can hold their head up without strain. They are now giving responsive smiles and can grab at their own feet.

"An infants smile was the greatest promise that the world would go on, no matter how much the grown-ups mucked around with it" Janice Maynard

6 months (Sitter) - Baby should now be able to sit up unassisted but not yet crawling. You can now gently toss them in the air, and play peek-a-boo. Since you do not have to chase the baby it is really easy to focus on their clothes, smiles and props.

"Babies should be classified as an antidepressant. It's pretty hard to be in a bad mood around a 6 month old baby" Jim Gaffigan

9 months - At this stage your baby should be starting to crawl, pulling up on chairs, belly laughing and just all around independent. Safety comes first in these sessions where we will always keep a parent near by to spot the child and make sure they don't fall or hurt themselves.

"Its an overwhelming moment where your entire life changes forever... but also so simple. Kiss. Hold. Warmth. Marvel." Amy Corbett Storch

1 year old - Your child should not be able to sit, stand, maybe even walk a little. They should have new teeth. Just becoming a toddler this is the last of their babyhood. These sessions are mainly about the child just having fun and maybe some playing with the parents. A birthday celebration is a great time for a cake smash.

"...part of me wants to just stop everything right where it is. She's perfect now. I don't want to ruin it by her growing up" Allison Hart
