Memory and thought
Your toddler is remembering more and figuring out how things work.
At around a year, most toddlers:
- Are able to wave bye-bye.
- Search for a lost toy because they can remember it.
Around 18 months, most toddlers:
- Are able to point to their eyes, mouth and nose as you name them.
- Go back to a game if interrupted.
At around two, most toddlers:
- Are able to ‘post’ simple shapes through holes.
- Remember daily routines; sit on the bottom step when it’s time to put shoes on, fetch a book for story time.
By three, most toddlers:
- Are able to do large-piece jigsaw puzzles.
- Act out versions of the real world; pour a cup of pretend ‘tea,’ take toys for a ride.
