Month 20

Month 20

“Try and keep up mom, I’m running now!”


I know what ordinary things are for (e.g. mobile, brush, spoon)

I can walk fast, run and even pull toys while walking

I’m starting to feel more emotions like anger, shame and excitement

Sorry, I’m deliberately doing what you’ve told me not to do

But I’m getting better at kicking & throwing a ball

My colouring is getting better, I can scribble with a pencil

My creation of structures with blocks are amazing

Found it – I can easily find hidden things
I bet you are proud I can sort by shapes and colours
Songs and rhymes are now something I can sing along with



Reading is fun as I can name the things in books

I walk everywhere

Sometimes it’s fun to run

Did you notice? – I’m ready to be potty trained
