  • DD can climb stairs, throw a ball, follow instructions(go throw this away, bring me a diaper, put this on the table), eat with a spoon or fork, walk, run, talk, says 60+ words, takes off her diaper when she pees, points and identifies things (tree, book, apple).

  • I have custody of a drug-born 17 month old. She really shows no debillating signs, but she does progress slower. We have had her since she was 7 weeks old and are very proud of her accomplishments. She never really crawled, sat up, or pulled herself up much. She did walk at 13 months, so not bad! She has a small vocab, but says something new almost daily. She can follow easy directions and she really knows 'no'. Points to her nose, ears, eyes, etc. She eats with a fork & spoon, throws ball well, throws the fork & spoon well too.

  • mines 16 months, and can throw a ball, play a movie in the DVD player, color with crayons, climb stairs, open doors, get things when asking for them, points to eyes, nose, mouth, etc. Eat with spoon and fork. Says 30+ words (I haven't counted, lol) rides her rider toys, climbs into chairs and sits. she knows when she's gone potty, but she's too short for potty training, although she lets me know when she needs a change. get's her high chair when she wants dinner/lunch/breakfast. etc
