What your baby understands in the second year
Speech and language Time

During the second year, your baby will consolidate the physical skills she has learned in the first year and she will master one of the most difficult intellectual skills - speech.

Fifteen months

She will want to brush her own hair and help you with household chores like dusting. She will understand the meaning of kissing and will kiss you on demand. She may not understand individual words, but will be able to comprehend quite complex sentences.

Eighteen months

She will know the names of the different parts of her body and will be able to identify them. She will point to objects like a dog, cow or ball when you read to her. If you ask her to fetch something, she will.

Twenty-one months

She will understand and obey simple requests. She will come to you and draw your attention towards things that interest her or anything with which she has a problem. She will love scribbling with a pencil.

Two years

By now, your baby becomes quite self-sufficient and can amuse herself. She will be quite happy playing on her own. She will make up and down strokes with a pencil, imitating a writing motion. She will know the names of familiar objects and use them with meaning.
