babycenter.com has growth and development and milestone charts.

It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.

It is not always best to compare your child to what "should" be done at a certain age. Every childs development differs. Some may do it early and others may do it late, it does not however mean there is a problem. If you are concerned, talk to your pediatrician or health department. If they feel she is behind, they can set her up for developmental tests. Even these can be wrong.

My son did not really talk much until he hit 2 yrs old. I had a specialist trying to force a hearing specialist down my throat telling me my son had hearing issues. I didn't believe it for one minute, he never showed signs of having a hearing problem. Sure enough, his second birthday he started talking our ear off and hasn't shut up since. I guess he just chose to sit back and listen and learn as much as he could before he opened his mouth. He is now at the end of kindergarten and at the top of his class in everything.

My son has been tested and has an IQ over 120. That is in the gifted and talented range. I said "no" to a lot of those stupid questions they ask at the doctors office. It does not mean your child is dumb or behind, but they never tell you that. They are really good at making you feel like a bad mother and your child is stupid or something. You should just pay attention to your daughter and if something really seems off to you, then do something about it. Don't just go by these questions or developmental charts, you will be pulling your hair out if you do.
