* Crawling and pulling on furniture to stand
* Needing help to get down from standing

* Pinching with the thumb and forefinger

The 8-month-old's language skills include:
* May say "Ma-Ma" and "Da-Da" but not specifically to parents
* Understanding simple instructions
* Shaking head no

The 8-month-old's mental abilities include:
* Reacting quickly to situations
* Showing interest in cause-and-effect relationships like making wheels turn or bells sound
* Anticipating events not related to own behavior like meeting Mom or Dad at the door
