  • Maybe you should help him. Did you see where he last put them? It's always the last place you check. Just keep looking.

  • Did you check under the couch? The cushions? Maybe try under the 'fridge. Did you accidentally put them through the washing machine?

  • Most CHILDREN don't comprehend their body parts until around 2. BABIES, may reach for and grab/poke whatever they can, but they haven't really "found" anything.

  • Ok, since I have no idea what you really mean, I can only answer with what I know best... sarcasm.

    However, I will try to be serious. A baby will tug their ear or rub their eyes if they are bothering the child for some reason (infection, etc), but they will not know what they are. Around age 2 or so children begin to understand body parts (which is why we all learn the Head, Shoulders, Knees, And Toes song).

  • This should help you. A milestones chart.  The milestones they list with specifice ages are an 'average' it is common for you child to be outside of that 'common' age by several months in one direction or the other..
