DD is going to be 2 next month. She understands quite alot, because she can follow some basic directions (No, don't touch, put it back, drink milk/juice, eat bananas, go bye-bye, etc.), however, we have no real gauge of her verbal skills since she simply refuses to repeat words most of the time. Every so often she comes up with something, then won't say it again. Mainly she says Boo-boo (her nickname), yeah, yes, no-no, mama, dada, gamma (grandma), kee-kee(kitty), and eat. She's learning 'good girl' and seems fond of repeating that one a bit more often.
She walks/runs well, climbs chairs/couches, takes small steps up and down well on her own, and larger steps with a steadying hand. Her hand-eye coordination seems excellent.
She HATES water...especially if it gets anywhere on her face. She will not sit in a tub, so she gets showers. And lately, food has been a minor fight. Even her favorite foods don't seem to excite her much. She's not ill, and her teething is in a settled spot at the moment.
Any thoughts on the words/water issue/encouraging to self feed more often?
