This is not some shameless brag post but I'm honestly curious about DD's behaviour.
She is 12 months old and is suprising me every day. She walks around the house and seems to know where everything is. I ask her to get "bubba" and she will go and get her doll. She found the dogs lead the other day and carried it around until she found the dog and then tried to put it on his neck.
I say "put your shoes on" and she will attempt to put her feet into her shoes. "time for bath" and she will walk ahead of me to the bathroom. "Where's DS1etc" and she will point". "Go nigh nigh" and she will lay down and laugh.
Says Ta Ta Ta but actually uses it in the right context. Nods when I say "is that yummy" or "do you want a drink". Sits down when I ask
She sits in her little eating chair and attempts to put the seatbelt on. Picks up washing and either puts in the basket or hands it to me while I hang it out.
Is this all normal 12mth old stuff? I can't remember.
She has only just turned one and although DS1 was a super bright toddler I really can't remember what he was doing. DS2....well let's just say thank goodness he has his looks and personality..

sounds pretty spot on for development. DD2 is 15mths and has been doing similar things for the last few months.
she's just added getting the mail from the letterbox and calling out 'chook chook' when we go feed our backyard chickens.
its amazing how quickly they pick things up

lol about your Ds2 .
My girls are almost 4 and 2 and they were doing the same at 12 months. DD1 talked a lot already, DD2 was doing the things your DD is doing, following instructions etc without much talking. So I'd say it's normal (at least for girls!)

Sounds pretty normal - but still awesome!!!
I get excited about Jasper's talking & he's been a bit behind... His understanding has always been good/normal so I've not worried. He's just not a talker. So every time he says anything new I think it's the coolest thing any child has ever said ever! Even if he's talking at 3 the same as a lot of 2-2.5 year olds, for him, it's still new & an achievement.
