How your Baby Develops? ( 2years old)

2 year old

Most people call it the "terrible-twos" , I call it the "awesome twos". They are starting to develop more independence and they tend to say no a lot. They do develop temper tantrums at this age or even a few months earlier. When you as a parent say no make sure it is a real no. 2 year olds are smart and if they know they can get what they want the temper tantrums become longer and more dramatic.
They can definitely walk up and down the stairs, socialize, use a fork and spoon. They usually start to dress themselves, they can stack blocks, scribble with crayons. They can start to talk in 2-word phrases and name body parts. They are the awesome twos.

They are starting to be a handful ,but fun. They definitely can walk up the stairs with some help. You see some children beginning to run. They also start to kick a ball and throw a ball overhand. They are starting to be more independent and they can feed themselves with a spoon and they can start to remove their clothes especially the diapers. Most toddlers have 5-10 words and sometimes can combine this into short phrases. They can definitely follow directions and point to body parts and pictures.
