At birth, babies have very little head control because their motor skills and neck muscles are fairly weak. By two months old, babies develop some head control and can lift their heads briefly. They can support their heads when held, but head control is still quite unsteady.
At birth, an infant's eyes are not well coordinated. During the first months of life, his or her eyes start working together and vision rapidly improves. By two months of age, infants begin to follow moving objects with their eyes, and should be able to track objects to the midline.
Babies typically begin cooing at around two months of age. Cooing is often described as vowel sounds strung together.
As an infant’s eyesight improves, he or she becomes better able to distinguish between different sights and sounds. At around two months old, babies can often respond to a smile with their own smile, which is called a social smile.
Most infants at this age will be paying attention to faces, and they will begin to recognize and enjoy interactions with their parents.
