Your 23-Month-Old This Week

Your toddler can probably hum and sing songs such as “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star� and make three-word sentences like “Dog run out.� She can probably follow a two-step request, like “Come here and turn around so I can comb your hair.� Many 23-month-olds love identifying opposites like tall man, short man, or big hot dog, little hot dog. But if your toddler isn’t doing all these things, don’t worry. Children learn to speak at different rates, and your child may still be working her way up to this stage.
