At six months old she will be able to distinguish between different emotions and facial expressions and may get excited when you are happy or become upset if you are sad. She is also starting to understand where things live in the world in relation to her, so if something is out of sight, she can move to see it and if something is hidden in a toy box, she may attempt to find it.
