BebeLuv will be ONE AND HALF YEARS OLD tomorrow…I’m sure all you mums of toddlers go through the same disbelief @ how quickly our lil people grow.
I have googled some milestones that BebeLuv shold be on-here’s a list I’ve compared 2:
Running – like the wind
Climbing - onto loungesuits, dining chair with side arms, jungle gym rungs
Combine two-word phrases - ‘more water’
* the word mostly used is ‘no’
* clearly saying 3 syllable words, commonly dragging the first syllable: baa-nana, pour-tay-too (potato)
names everything almost – things I haven’t even actively taught her: foot, toes, fork, tea, juice. just points everywhere and calls out.
Walks fast, walks up stairs with one hand held, kicks a ball – yup, all of these. Especially LUVS balls
Feeds himself or herself, drinks from a cup adequately and uses a spoon - Yes can feed herself pasta and sandwiches and fruits & snacks, uses a Sippy cup & uses a fork better than a spoon
Imitates a crayon stroke on paper. LUVS scribbling
Holds and “loves” a doll or stuffed animal; may use a household-type toy (for example, a toy telephone) appropriately. Cutest dolls Mummy & phone chatterbox
Will sit for a short time and look at pictures in a book. Turns single pages in book or magazine - sits for a loooong time with books
Hugging and Kissing - initiates kisses herself & asked for hugs & lays against us. She even hugged a strange dog @ the park. She wasn’t so lucky with the cat last week & got scratched on her arm
Sitting on the toilet – not really understanding what to do yet. Just familiarising
•Obeys simple instructions such as ‘find your clipe please’, and responds to simple questions such as ‘Where’s the cat?’
•Refers to herself by name – & to me by name :0
•Knows where objects are kept… this reflects an increase in long-term memory – yup
•Plays continuously alone… solitary play… but may like to be near a familiar adult or sibling – not solitary completely. She must see someone around
She waves at starngers & walks upto people randomly and says ‘Hello’.
* become frustrated, with occasional temper tantrums – YES!
•Is able to follow stories, enjoy stories and rhymes that include repetition. - LUVS stories & rhymes. Identifies aalot of objects & vocabs from most of her books, even those with lots on 1 page.
* Respond to simple directions – knows her way around the house and the immedite surrounds outside
* Feeding is a traumatic experience for all involved, unless she’s in zombie mode thanks to a DVD
Lots of other stuff happening in our lives at the moment – especially with the nanny situation, unpaid leave that I applied for today and my company not being too impressed and need to review my employment…more on that in the next post. This one was decicated espcially to the star of of my life…
Have a good weekend y’all
