your baby understands in the second year
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
