  • I have twin boys who will be three in November. At 25 mos one knew colors, numbers, letters, and things like that and the other did not. The one who did not however was displaying much more play through imagination than the other.
    The experts don't expect children to do these things until they're 3 anyway so if your LO isn't, don't stress it.

  • My son just turned 25 months old and said his alphabet completely for the first time today. He knows how to count to 20 and can identify all of his colors and about 5 shapes. He talks in 4-5 word sentences and will pee in the potty but won't go #2 yet. He can undress but can't dress himself very well. He has also started to sing songs which is really entertaining! Every child is different-unless there's a big developmental delay you shouldn't worry.
