Kenya Moore’s baby girl is 5 months old, but fans think the time has gone by much too fast.
A new photo “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum posted onto baby Brooklyn Doris Daly’s Instagram page April 25 showed the baby surrounded by an array of toys and books to increase her motor skills and knowledge.
“Woo, I’m hard at work today! #miraclebaby,” Moore, who runs Brooklyn’s account, captioned the photo.
In response, fans focused on how big Brooklyn has gotten.
“She’s growing so fast! Such a cutie!”
“She is so cute. She’s growing up so fast. I love her play area. And she’s really trying to figure out what to do next LOL and of course I can tell she still has those little tiny feet stuck in the air LOL”
Brooklyn’s apparent growth spurt comes after the baby has been making strides in her development. Last month, Moore shared a photo of the then-4-month-old holding up her own bottle.
Much like they raved about Brooklyn’s growth Thursday, fans did just the same when they saw her past photo of developmental achievement.
“Awwww her already holding her bottle time is flying so adorable she is”
“Wow! She can hold her bottle?! She’s growing up very fast’
“She’s a grown up practically!”
And the astonishment came with good reason. As Dr. Sandeepa Rajadhyaksha told millennial parenting website The Bump, babies typically begin holding their own bottles at 6 to 10 months old. The associate medical director of the Dallas-based Children’s Health Pediatric Group said this occurs when “their fine motor skills develop.”
Soon fans caught another development that indicates Brooklyn is right on track in her advancement.
The baby also astonished fans when it appeared she uttered the word “hi” in another Instagram video Moore shared in March.
“I know you heard @thebrooklyndaly say #brooklyndaly #4monthsold #babydaly,” Moore captioned the clip she posted to her own social media account.
The accompanying video saw baby Brooklyn repeatedly babbling and even making a sound that many heard as an enthusiastic “Hi!” The moment wowed Moore’s fans.
“Omg the cutest baby woooow omg.”
“ well hi there!”
“Babbling is an important milestone,” speech-language pathologist Sherry Artemenko told Parents magazine, “because it represents the beginning of real communication, when a baby starts experimenting with sounds, listening for a reaction, responding, and building social relationships.”
