They will not stop moving … and neither will you! They have an interest in everything around them. This, coupled with a very short attention span, will result in moving from one thing to another. Non-stop activities and fun!
During this year your child will focus on what’s immediately in front of them. That said, get ready! They’ll be on the run. Your toddler will carry large toys, stand on their toes, and throw a ball. They’ll climb on furniture, walk up stairs, and scribble on paper. Your toddler will fill and dump, build towers of 4 or more, show right/left preferences, point to pictures you name, follow simple instructions, repeat what they have heard, and even find hidden objects.
By age two, their vocabulary will start to explode with a new word every day, and short sentences will emerge. Use lots of words with your child. They’re little sponges and you can start to build vocabulary now!
