Age (in months, or years and months): 31.5 months
Physical abilities: Is trying to do the monkey bars/rings at the park. Does pretty well, but I still have to support her legs as she moves her arms independently. Has developed an increased love of dance again this month. Weird jumping moves where she stands in place with her feet spread wide apart and jumps straight in the air and turns 180 degrees then plants her feet again.
Speech/language: vocabulary, sentence length, etc: Singing finally! She started out with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and has added several more songs to her repertoire in the last couple of weeks. She was always one to sing and make up her own songs, but singing known songs is new for her.
Reading/pre-reading: ABC song, Has picture read a story to Stella a couple of times, but nothing particularly new as of late.
Number stuff: We have more rote counting this month: 1-8. She is still much better at number recognition and 1:1 counting than she is at rote counting. I find this odd, but maybe it’s normal?
Other cognitive stuff: puzzles, reasoning, etc Very interested in weather this month and night vs. day. Seems to be trying to figure out how the sun and the moon relate to one another and the patterns that ensue.
Imagination: More pretend play, imaginary friend play, is using her kitchen more since I moved it into the living room again.
Social: Is interacting m ore with other kids when she has the opportunity. She still gravitates towards older ones, but is starting to prefer girls more often…or maybe she’s just has more chances to play with girls lately.
Character/personality: sweet, loving, stubborn, argumentative, bossy, loud
School Updates: n/a
