At 12 months, most children will have taken their first baby steps and be able to climb the stairs in their second year. Some words and gestures are likely to develop during their first 12 months. As for physical development, it’s expected that toddlers develop better gross motor skills in their first 12 months with excellent motor skills starting to show on their second year.
Children at this age are also able to utter simple words such as “mama” and “dada” and have a knack for repetitive play such as throwing a toy so you can pick it up. To the eyes of a 1-year-old girl, everything is worth exploring, tasting, and touching. They’ll also engage with other children to play.
This is the best time to expose them to challenges that are appropriate for a 1-year-old. Teaching them about everyday items such as a spoon, cup, or phone enhances their understanding of what those items are for.
Pretend play is also prominent where children mimic what mommy or daddy does. It’s also good to read with them helps so they connect with what you say to the images presented in the book.
Musical toys with counting, singing, or repeating phrases also encourage counting and conversations. So, if you’re planning to purchase a toy for a 1-year-old girl soon, choosing educational and functional toys would be a worthy investment.
