Willow will be 2 in a couple of weeks. We have done SO much in that 2 years it's not even funny. Willow is so independent, vocal and capable of things beyond her years that I forget that she is only a toddler-even though we treat her like a pre-schooler, and expect as much of her too at times.
She can talk in sentences and is pretty easily understood. She can put on her own shoes and pants. She eats with cutlery and puts herself in her chair. She gets in her carseat. She (mostly) waits her turn. She wants to give undies and the toilet a go. She climbs all the big kid things at the park-to my terror at times lol. Luke puts her to bed at night.
It seems crazy that she is only still one year old! A lot of these tings she has been doing for some time. She's been walking since 10 months old so she seemed like a toddler when she was only really a baby. She has disliked being carried in a sling or carrier from pretty much then-preferring to walk or be pushed in a pram.
She is fiercely independent. Her first few words strung together were ( I kid you not) "I do dat!" and she has been trying ever since. She is doing things waaay earlier than Tannah. I wonder how much is nature and how much is nurture?
