In our last Get a Move On post, the “right age” for your baby’s development marked milestones from holding his/her head up to walking. This time we thought we’d show you what’s likely to happen once mobility has taken hold and your little one doesn’t seem so little anymore!
|Average Age||Age Range||Motor Behavior|
|1.5 Years||1.3 – 1.8 Years||Run|
|2.0 Years||1.8 – 2.5 Years||Gallop & Double Jump|
|2.5 Years||2 – 3 Years||Vertical Jump|
|3.2 Years||3 – 4 Years||Stand Alone on One Foot (5 Sec.)|
|3.3 Years||3 – 4 Years||Standing Long Jump|
|3.4 Years||3 – 4 Years||Hop|
|4.5 Years||4 – 5 Years||Skip|
Just like that, your little one is a “hop, skip and jump” away from entering school, ready to take on the world. Enjoy the bunny hop and skipping through the front lawn, college will be here soon enough.
As always, if you ever have any concerns, please talk to your pediatrician. All kids grow and learn at their own pace!
