The first year of life is filled with accomplishments and discoveries. North West, just like every newborn human, filled her time by stretching out on soft fabrics, drooling, and peeing wherever she pleased. Babies are wonderful and a little magical, aren’t they?
Nori is now 1 year old, and with each month that passed in her young life, new milestones were achieved and new lessons learned. Compared to the accomplishments of the basic babe — gleaned from the truly informative What to Expect: The First Twelve Months — here’s how North’s first year stacked up.
The First Month
It doesn't seem as if average wee ones do many things during this time. By the end of the month, they can start to control their heads and necks.
North West undertook the modern tech-intellectual pilgrimage of our age, meeting Steve Wozniak. She acquired coveted name-approval from Anna Wintour. And, fully a year and a half away from a baby’s mirror phase (15 to 18 months), Nori received her first imitator.
The Second Month
An ordinary baby will smile in response to his or her parents in the second month.
The Fourth Month
At this time, civilian babies can start to roll over and bear a slight amount of weight on their legs.
Nori had no need to roll or bear weight. She lay wrapped up in a blanket on soft, snow-white fleece.
The Sixth Month
Normal babies can now track moving objects with their eyes and potentially sleep through the night. The typical baby can start to master the Pincer Grasp.
Nori got herself a stylist: Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci. She was the impetus behind a big label fallout. North West also clutched a very heavy engagement ring and smiled and drooled (a possible sign of teething).
The Seventh Month
The non-celebrity baby can begin to sit alone, steadily.
The Eighth Month
This is when the basic baby starts to invent all sorts of new ways to move: bottom scoots, army-style, wriggle, creep, crawling, etc.
The Tenth Month
North West was featured prominently in Vogue.
The Twelfth Month
This is primo age for “cruising,” which is when typical babies pull themselves up to a stand position and launch themselves between surfaces.
North weathered a celebrity-nuptial extravaganza. She looks a little jealous in all the pictures.
And what to expect for the following year?
The normal babe learns how to walk. North will mostly likely continue to be swaddled in fabrics so plush you can't even imagine their dreamlike softness.
