2 and 1/2

WOW, Aiden turned 2 and 1/2 yesterday. WOW. So, here's development milestones for him

Most Kids

• Recites own name (He recites his own name, but it sounds more like, Aden Osalas. :) )
• Draws a circle (Not sure if he can draw a circle, but he sings the circle song and draws a circle in the air with his hand, does that count?)

50% of Kids

• Puts on a T-shirt (I usually help him put it on his head and then he does the arms, but I think he could put it on himself)
• Balances on each foot for a second (Sure, I don't really know, but I don't think he stands still for more then a second)
• Recognizes ABCs (He sings along with ABCs but we have to start working on recognition, he will point at letters and call out B or P or D, they all sound the same)
• Brushes teeth by himself (Yep, doing that since he was about a year old. Dada helps get the back teeth)

Advanced Children -

• Uses two adjectives (do I even know what 2 adjectives are right now? I have to look that up...OK, he uses Big, "Big Truck" and Loud, but those are the only 2 I can think of right now)
• Draws a cross - (Not sure, we'll have to see on that one)
• Points to objects described by use (does color count. :) I color with a color! Not sure, we will have to test him)

He even has some of the older things down:

33 and 34 months
• Names one color (he's can recoginize Blue, Green and Red, 80% of the time)
• Names one friend (He's got this down, he is always asking for Della and Paul)
• Carries on a simple conversation (Yep)
• Alternates feet going up and down stairs (He's got that down, too)
• Uses prepositions (e.g., on, in, over) (Yep)
• Speaks clearly most of the time (75 percent can be understood) (HUM, might not have 75%, sometimes I still don't know what he's asking for and he has to show us.)
• Expresses a wide range of emotions (HAHA, well he has mad, angry, excited, happy, and upset down)

35 and 36 months

• Uses three to four words in a sentence (Sure, "Mommy, I want juice." usually has to do with something he wants.)
• Names two actions (e.g., skipping, jumping) (he says, "I Walk" "I Jump")
• Hops and skips (When he's not running, yes)
• Separates fairly easily from parents (Since he was about 2 months old, no problems here, he'll even push you out or say, "BYE MOMMY" to get you out)
• Rides a tricycle (He has a tricycle, but can't figure out the peddles yet)
