By the end of eleventh month, your baby might start to take few steps but do not worry if you can’t see her walking already; most children do not walk till 15 months. By this time, you may hear your child frequently calling you and say few other words. Babies tend to express their opinion loud and clear especially during meal times. She is not afraid to let you know her likes and dislikes.
