What’s It Like To Be One Year Old?

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 06-11-2007

  • I’ve tripled my birth weight and now weigh around 20 pounds.
  • I am 26 to 30 inches tall.
  • I’m learning to walk, but I still crawl if I want to get somewhere fast.
  • I can climb out of my crib.
  • I can understand many words and like you to talk to me.
  • I can take lids off containers and open cabinet doors.
  • I like to imitate familiar sounds and may say a few words you can
    understand.
  • I can solve simple problems like finding a lost toy.
  • I have lots of energy and am always on the go.
  • I like to push or pull toys when I practice walking.
  • I insist on holding a spoon when I eat, but I’m not too accurate, and I
    have lots of spills.
  • I like to look at pictures in books and magazines.
  • I can play by myself for a little while if you are nearby.
  • I may fuss if things don’t go my way or if I’m tired or frustrated.
