Year Three: Developmental Skills


I hope you all had a great Halloween!!! This week we are discussing developmental skills from kiddos 24 months to 36 months (two to three). During this year you will see a lot more independent skills emerging and some pre-school skills. Such a fun year to see them grow up and become their own person. There are also some difficult skills that your two year old is dealing with, check out my post on the ‘terrible two’s’
