Charlotte has been bottle free for about a year. Still sleeps in the cot. Only just started talking. Will repeat everything we say, but not clearly. Is very independant. Won't let us help her do anything. Very headstrong. Knows what she wants and knows how to get it. Has everyone wrapped around her fingers. She is a climber. Will climb on anything. Only needs to be told once or see something once and she has it. And she never forgets. Ever. She loves to draw and colour. Dosent know her colours, shapes or ABCs, but knows every part of her body. So far we have not found anyting she wont eat. She loves to watch the news. lol.

My daughter is 2 and 4 months. She has been day time potty trained since her a little bit before her second birthday and is almost night potty trained. I just get up at about 1am to take her so she doesn't pee the bed. She loves to sing and dance and sings twinkle twinkle little star, row row row your boat and old MacDonald all by herself. She is super obsessed with Dora and can work our TV and DVD player. She can can to 12 in English and 10 in Spanish. I am teaching her a little German but she likes Spanish much better. She knows all the basic colors. Her Papa taught her with M&Ms. She loves to do 24 piece puzzles and have tea parties and wants real tea to serve. She is a good eater most of the time and loves green beans, bread and hot dogs. She is a wonderful help in the kitchen and loves to help cook. Sometimes she gets too excited and makes a huge mess. She is not a very tidy little girl and most often refuses to pick up her toys. She speaks very clearly and has a large vocabulary. She speaks in paragraphs and almost never shuts up. She sleeps in a single bed and loves to read. We read at least 4 books a day. She plays Scrabble with us and by that I mean she gets her own tiles and builds a tower with them but she knows the letters A,B,C,I,L,M,O and can recite the alphabet with a little help. She can also read a few words. Mina (her name), cat and baby. She is adventurous and love to play outside. And is becoming a little mommy. (I also have a 2 month old) She is definitely a little copycat and likes to imitate her 4 year old cousin, who is not as well behaved or smart as he should be, which results in a lot of time-outs.
But over all Mina is a very smart, sweet little girl and I feel very luck to have her.

My daughter is very independent, she gets herself dressed, feeds herself, but not potty trained yet (She holds her pee up to 5 hours without diapers). I call her my maid, since I get her to help around and fetches stuffs for me. She loves Disney jigsaw puzzles, currently at 96 pieces, and memory games (where you flip 2 cards and see if they match) knows her alphabet and counts to 20. She accepts reasons and we can compromise with her with almost anything. Almost. Talks a lot, we get tired from just listening to her.

Cecilia sings her ABC's and many other songs, loves to dance and can count to 10. As far as actually counting objects, she makes it to five accurately, after that it's just random pointing combined with reciting numbers (pretty cute actually). She talks in complete sentences and eats and drinks from a cup independently, she's been doing that since 1. She sleeps in a twin bed and is daytime potty trained. She love to "help" me around the house and plays pretty involved pretend games. We read tons of stories, she has about 100 books and can find any one of them in her bookcase when asked. I know she's not reading the titles yes, but I'm still pretty impressed by her memory for the pictures and colors on the covers. She know her shapes and colors, and omg, I need to end this email, LOL clearly I could go on forever.

my little girl can talk in sentances, now all her colours and shapes can count to 15 and can say a word from seeing a letter ie she nows L is for lucy and W is for window. she is on the potty in the house but still needs a nappy when we go out and for bed. she is very independant as i think most little girls are and wants to do everything for her self !!

I meant to put this comment up here, not down there. :)
My Francesca is 2 years and 1 month. She removed the bottle when she turned 1 and when she asked for it we just said she was a big girl and she didn't complain. We gave her milk in a cup with a straw. It was difficult during the night but that was all. She can sing her ABC's, Itsy Bitsy Spider, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Ring Around The Rosy, London Bridge, Baba Black Sheep, Mary Had a little lamb, Jesus Loves Me. Can count from 1-20 (sometimes she skips) in English, can count 1-10 in Mandarin, Tagalog and French. She knows her facial features in three languages. She's can go to the bathroom to pee if she wants to and tells us "no diaper everyday" but for some reason she's all of a sudden shy about going poo poo. We started to sit her on the toilet at 10 months just 'cause we knew when she would grunt and even taught her sign language and she would sign it, but now that she started walking and talking it's almost as if she's shy and she hides! As soon as she's not around and all is quiet we know that's what she's doing and then we go to her and put her on the toilet. She talks a lot, with us, to us, to her toys, strangers, animals, etc. She's very independent, doesn't like us to help her unless she asks. Likes to help around the house, putting rolled socks away, sweeping the floor and washing the dishes. She asks us to read books to her everynight usually more than three times. I love that part. I hope this helps. And of course it's nice to see and compare children together to see where they're at but just remember that all children learn at different stages and some things will interest them more than others. :)Reply Reply with quote Edit Delete Are you sure?

my son is almost potty trained. still has a few accidents. doesnt talk very much. loves to pretend hes a puppy. he can work the dvd player. loves to jump off of things. likes to feed me pretend food. likes to feed his toy puppy pretend food. feeds himself, drinks from a cup (although he likes to try to pour his water into other cups or anything that would hold liquid).

My 2 yr old son, Caleb, is just starting to talk alot more. He says 2 or 3 word sentences. He can communicate to me what he wants. He feeds himself (very messy of course) drinks with a straw. He totally understands everything we say to him and follows directions very well. Still in crib. He is not quite ready for potty training...he likes to sit on the potty with his pants on though! He can count to 10 with help. He helps me dress him. He is a comedian...if he see that something he does makes someone laugh he keeps doing it! We call him our little clown!

my son is two, he's feeding himself, drinking from a cup and only just started the very basics of potty training....He says a few words but not many sentences....He sleeps in a single bed as we thought it was pointless giving him a toddler bed...Tristan can count to 10 on his own an knows many shapes and colours....
Like all the other girls have said, each child is different. My friend has a little boy the same age and he doesnt talk yet....

kainaan ahs been bottle free since he turned 1, he sleeps in a toddler bed, not yet ready for potty training, he can speak in full sentences and he is able to convey to me exactly what he wants. on the other hand i have a 2 year old nephew that doesn't talk, all he really knows is how to say mama, dada, drink and no. he is still on a bottle and sleeps in a baby bed, and doesn't seem to understand what you are saying to him. every child is different.

My girl is VERY independent! She is daytime potty trained since 18 mo's (her choice, wanted to be like big sis). Won't do anything she doesn't "choose" to do. Puts 2-3 word together (very lazy talker), doesn't chew would rather just suck and swallow. Threw away the bottle at 11 mo's. Will count and say abc's by copying, not on her own. Knows a few colors, maybe 2-3 shapes well. My older daughter was spelling 3 letter words at 2! Kids are different in every way! Boys seem to be more physically developed than the girls, although my 2 yr old may be quite the tom-boy!
Rachel - posted on 09/14/2009
Mine is talking pretty much in sentences now, potty trained during the day, feeds himself, mostly dresses himself. Doesn't know shapes and colors and stuff, but can match anything together. He's not interested in the ABC's and counting yet. Very independent, likes to try and do everything himself.

Brianne - posted on 09/11/2009
geez.. good question :) well my Athena is day time potty trained. I dont expect night time to be anytime soon as she still has a bottle at bed and she is really not ready to be done with that. She can sing her ABC's and recognizes colors and shapes. She talks in sentences, loves Broccoli and tells me she loves me everyday! She can count to 13 but only when she wants to, she is not the "do it on command" type child :) Hope this helps!! Just remember that every child is different and that boys and girls develop very differently!!
