In this sentence we would understand the usage of verb in different tense forms. The tense here represents the verb in past, present or future thus they are in different form but have the same meaning. 
Option A is a simple past tense, is a statement of fact that was there in the past
Option B is a present continuous tense, used to talk about actions that continue for a period of time in present form 
Option C is a simple present tense, is a statement of fact that still exists in the present
Option D is a continuous past tense, used to talk about actions that continue for a period of time in past form
This whole paragraph is in past tense form and a fact has been stated about the little baby. Thus it is a simple past tense
Option A is correct.
