Toddler Development, Toddler Blog, Ages 13 to 24 Months


Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." ~ Matthew 19:14

According to Merriam Webster, Inc, a toddler is defined as a young child who is just learning to walk. This holds true in two senses: 1) the very beginning of the toddler years marks the stage when an infant / baby is starting to balance on their own two feet and walk on their own and 2) It is our job to help them "toddle" through these challenging years that prepare them for childhood. This is relative to a toddler's overall emotional, cognitive, physical, language, spiritual and social development between the ages of 1 to 3 years old. They are toddling through these years; gaining independence and learning more about their world. Toddling is much more awkward than the lack of physical control and life skills they learned to develop as babies. The toddler years are to childhood as the teen years are to adulthood; long transitional periods.


Some may find it hard to believe that a 12 or 13 month old baby is considered a toddler because one typically thinks of a toddler as an emotional, tantrum throwing, playful and potty training small child. The average baby learns to walk between 9 and 12 months, though becomes more steady on their feet by 12 months (1 years old). At this age they are still in diapers; cutting teeth; weaning from bottles; using "sippy cups"; eating food with their fingers, etc.

By 2 and 3 years old, most toddlers can physically walk but are still learning how to "walk" through their new life. They are still unsteady in a lot of areas (balancing, holding a cup, communicating, interacting with others). Similar to infant babies, each toddler develops at their own pace and has unique characteristics, personalities and physical characteristics. They start the toddler stage in diapers and end the toddler years as boys and girls preparing to go to preschool. Society does not consider them infants or toddlers at this point in time, though they will always be our babies.

Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.

I pray that the toddler years will be as rewarding as your baby's 1st year :)
