I have a 3 yr old little boy who was born feb. 5th and i just wanted to hear about some of the development that other kids his age are having.i dont believe he is behind developmentally i more just curious. he is actually a very bright little boy he knows how to work a dvd player, tv remote, cell phone, he can catch and throw with good aim, hit a baseball with a bat pretty far and he rarely misses(when he is seriously trying lol), he know how to ride a bike with training wheels, can say his abc's and 123's to 30(he can't recognize them on paper yet), he can tell you the name of his favorite movies and show by seeing the picture from them, he can dress and undress himself, pour his own drinks(with a little help and a watchful eye over him), always uses a big kid cup with no lid(unless we are out of the house), he eats on his own with utensils properly, he talks very well for his age or so ive been told, and I'm sure there are things im forgetting but it's hard to keep up with him he is so busy. the things he has not yet mastered that we are working on are potty training(he doesnt like the idea at all he wont use the potty period but he'll act as if he is interested and has shown all the signs of being perpared for this milestone), reconizing words and letters on paper, listening to mom lol but im sure ill battle with that one til he way older and things he has shown interest in learning but we havent tried just yet are skating, fishing, swiming by his self (he has always loved to swim since a while after birth lol),

ya i was in and would like to join again parents as teachers but when we moved i had no idea how to get back into becaues they set you help with a teacher for private visits to see how children are doing developmentally but i have a more laid back aproach to his development im just kinda curious i know they will learn different things in different settings and i know a lot of the reason why he has learned how to work this electronic stuff ive mentioned is because of my teenaged brothers and sisters. the only thing i can say truly had a major hand in is his speech and thats cuz i have been very persistant about intrducing him to vocabulary since before birth (not that i thought hed pick it up) but i wanted to know he had been around it enough that maybe he would and he has in the last year or so his vocab has soared not always a great thing(teenaged siblings) because he has managed to pick up a few favorite curse words we are working on removing from his vocab lol but its really cool to me to see what others parents are going through with their devlopmental break throughs the never seem to stop amazing you every tot ive ever met or heard about can do or has learned somethings that to me are surprizing due to their still so young and its so cool

Sounds as if he's pretty much on track, all children will do different things at slightly different times so it hard to compare. If you want to keep an eye on his developement then there are loads of books on the market but remember they are just a guide.
