Default guess my age

An infant presents to the pediatrician for a routine check-up. His mother reports that he plays peek-a-boo at home, waves bye-bye, and will say "dada." He cannot yet drink from a cup. He seemed somewhat apprehensive when the physician entered the room. He can lift his head when lying on his stomach, sit unassisted, and stand with help. He has a positive Babinski's reflex.
If this infant has met all his developmental milestones appropriately, how old is he?

A. 4-5 months
B. 7-11 months
C. 12-15 months
D. 18 months
E. 24 months

add more info, why you choose the ans, correct ans at the end. let the discussion begin

Id say B. he's about 10 months. Peek a boo starts at that age 10 months appr. Babinksi disappears by 12 months so he's definitely less than a year. Plus he has stranger anxiety which is present from 6-12 months
