By two months of age your little one will begin falling in love! She starts looking at you longingly as if nothing else in this world exists. She will start giving you radiant smiles when you pick her up and will start cuddling into you when you give her a cuddle. Her face brightens when she hears your voice and she begins to wiggle with excitement as she sees you coming towards her. She is working towards the important developmental milestone of emotional expression. Some negative emotions will also start to appear such as her appearing to look sad when you move away from her or becoming cross when she is frustrated by something you are doing. By 3 months old she is experiencing all of the passion and drama of a true love story.
