Child development 101
Observing age 1-2
The child I observed was male and approximately one and a half years old. This was a natural observation; the place was at my home in the bedroom of my apt. I was the only person in the room. To my knowledge and what I have observed was Martrell. The time of observation was at 2:00 until 3:00pm. Martrell was playing with his toys by himself when the observation began. A few minutes later Martrell went to a shelf and pulled down everything on the shelf. As he was pulling them off the shelf he then looked at me and smiled, after the smile he decided to pick them up off the floor and put them back. I asked Martrell if he wanted to play with his toy doggy. This toy doggy teaches him his shapes, ABCs, 123s, and how to sing. He went into the front room area, and grabbed the doggy and jumped on top of it to ride it around and then he started to play with the doggy. Martrell played with the doggy without any complaints. Then I asked him if he want to eat, and he repeated back to me( eat, eat,) which means yes he wants something to eat. So I gave him some oranges, and grapes of which he loves. After he finished eating his fruit then I picked him up and started to play with him by tickling him for a couple of minutes. We were having a little fun together until he decided to poop then it was time for me to change his pamper. After changing his pamper I decided to let him play on his own again; then he went back to the doggy. Now as far as I know Martrell I have observed the things that he does when he comes around to visit. They are when he moves about, he sometimes crawls, shuffling, he can stand up without anyone holding him, he can sit up on his own he sometimes try to feed his self, he will use his hands to skillfully move an object from one place to another. He’ll drop something on the floor just to pick it back up; he knows how to wave hello and goodbye....
