RE: When do babies start to hold their arms up to you?
I can't remember exactly when Alexander started holding his arms up to me but I want to say it wasn't till around 8 or 9 months. As far as the baton twirling for Alexander it is usually a sign that he is excited about something. It is one of the ways he communicates that to us. He has only recently stopped doing that as he verbalizes more but every once in a while he gets so excited he still does it.
