As she starts into her third year, you will notice some dramatic achievements. For example, your toddler will start to:

  • Walk upstairs and downstairs alone, with both feet on one step.
  • Scribble, clutching the crayon in her whole hand.
  • Show she can be attached to a cuddly or favourite toy.
  • Express feelings through language and pretend play.
  • Better understand the similarities and differences of shapes and sizes.
