A 2 month old still does not have the ability to grasp objects voluntarily..The grasp reflex which is a primitive reflex had to disappear to acquire voluntary grasp..Thus, even if the baby shows interest in objects, it will not try to reach out for it.

Laughing aloud and squealing appear around 4 months..
