all that apply.)
- Uses pincer grasp appropriately.
- Moves a block between hands.
- Picks up a stuffed animal.

The correct answers are A, B, C, and D. Using the pincer grasp, moving a block between hands, picking up a stuffed animal, and picking up larger finger foods are age appropriate fine motor skills for a 9 month old. A 9 month old can not yet turn a book one page at a time. That motor skill is obtained between 12-18 months.
