A milestone that I never miss is "baby finds the DVD player." One day the baby is playing happily in the living room with baby toys. Then, out of the blue, it is like they suddenly see the entertainment center and try pulling up on it. From then on it lures them to push buttons all the time. M3 was actually playing happily with toys by my feet when I started typing, but sprinted over to push buttons right now.
I took this photo of M3 last week (with no posing or prompting)...
