Mighty Mover & Mini Mastermind: Your 26-Month-Old's Bright Future!

Mighty Mover & Mini Mastermind: Your 26-Month-Old's Bright Future!


Hey, Mumma, Dada! I’ve been growing and learning so much lately. Here’s a little update on what I’ve been up to:

The Benefits of My Early Development

Gross Motor Skills: Hey Maa/Dada, I can walk and run along lines of different shapes, like circles and squares. I even understand the concept of a lock and key and try to open locks independently. And guess what? I can jump off the ground using both legs!

Fine Motor Skills: Mumma/Daddy, I can draw straight lines, both horizontal and vertical, with little help. I also love cutting play dough with a plastic knife and putting on shoes without laces with some help.

Cognitive Development: Maa/Dada, I can match items to their respective parts, like matching tops and bottoms of dresses or caps of bottles. I understand broad time concepts like 'now,' 'later,' and 'when this happens.' I can also sort objects based on shapes or colors!

Speech Development: Mumma/Daddy, I understand words like 'over' and 'under' and can follow instructions that contain these words. I can also sing along to my favorite rhymes and express myself using 3–4 word phrases like 'I want to drink water.' My vocabulary is expanding, and I can speak 50–100 words now!

Self-Care: Maa/Dada, I'm getting better at taking care of myself. I can put on my shoes without laces with a little help, and I can cut play dough with a plastic knife. I also love to serve myself food and eat using a spoon and fork!

Social-Emotional Development:  Mumma/Daddy, I love being part of the family activities. I can independently serve food for myself on the dining table, recognize places when shown in pictures, and follow instructions to clean or organize a place when you do it with me.

Types of my developmental milestones

Other Development Highlights: Maa/Dada, I can jump using both legs, understand the concept of racing, and love persistent activities like putting together domino chips. I'm learning so much every day!

Additional Physical Development: I can follow a few dance steps with you. I can turn the pages of a book one by one. I can roll a ball towards someone and stop a ball from coming towards me. I try to take off my shoes and pull down my elastic pants with some help. I’m getting better at using a spoon and fork to eat without spilling much. I enjoy pressing and rolling modeling clay to make shapes with little help. I can throw a ball over my head.

Additional Cognitive Development: I can identify and name 3–5 colors in objects inside and outside the home. I can stack rings independently on the ring stacking toy in the correct order, with little or no help. I understand and can imagine places like home, garden, parking, office, clinic, and shopping. I can identify primary-color objects from a group of colored objects with some guidance. I can recognize an object by just listening to its sound, like saying "phone" when it rings.

Additional Communication Development: I can form phrases of three words to express my thoughts or needs, like "I want curd" or "Let’s go out." My vocabulary has expanded to around 150–200 words, and I recognize most everyday objects now. I’m learning the names of various outdoor items like trees, plants, parts of a tree, paths, roads, sidewalks, poles, and signals. I can identify and name common actions like dancing, playing, jumping, running, and driving. I can name and identify 6–10 fruits when I see pictures or real fruits. I can identify and speak up to five alphabets.

Additional Social and Emotional Development: I cooperate as a team member to perform tasks that can’t be done alone. I recognize myself in old pictures and videos from a few months ago, showing a recall of events over a longer timeframe now. I understand what it means to look good, pretty, or cute, and I like to be praised for my looks when I experiment with new things. I can brush my teeth when instructed by an adult and follow the routine of brushing in the morning and at night. I can wash my hands with help from an adult. I can identify myself by my name and answer the question, "What’s your name?"


Research shows that engaging in these activities helps enhance my cognitive, motor, and social-emotional development. Studies in pediatrics and early childhood development highlight the importance of these interactions for my growth.

Isn’t it amazing, Mumma and Dada?
