Speedy Scooter Rider, Silly Joke Teller & Super-Star Helper: Your 35-Month-Old's Shining Spark!


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 Mumma/Daddy, I can draw simple shapes like a circle or a square with rough precision. I can also ride and steer my bicycle or scooter by myself!

Fine Motor Skills: Maa/Dada, I can use my 'helping hand' to hold paper while I cut with scissors. I’m also getting better at using small tools and containers for play, like shovels and spoons for sand or water.

Cognitive Development: Mumma/Daddy, I understand floating and sinking and can tell which objects will do what. I try to draw familiar people with simple lines and can complete new puzzles with 3–4 pieces on my own.

Speech Development: Maa/Dada, I like using language for jokes and teasing. I can have conversations with longer sentences and tell you my name, age, gender, and birthday. I also know and use simple concepts like big and small.

Self-Care: Mumma or Daddy, I can help around the house more, like unloading the dishwasher or making my bed. I can also eat by myself using utensils without spilling much.

Social-Emotional Development: Maa/Dada, I understand that feelings have causes, like when Teddy is sad because he lost his toy. I enjoy imitating adults and friends and get upset when my routine changes.

Types of my developmental milestones

Other Development Highlights: Mumma/Daddy, I’m getting better at understanding and solving problems. I love science experiments and trying different solutions to see what works!

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?
