Developmental Milestones To Look for in Your 1-Year-Old Child


Being a parent is one of the most rewarding jobs that a person can ever have. With all the excitement and joy, though, does come a certain level of anxiety about your child's development. Instead of obsessing about whether your child is growing and learning at the right speed, educate yourself on normal child development Desoto TX milestones.

Standing
Your 1-year-old child may not be running around the house yet, but he or she should be sitting up without assistance. He or she may also pull up on furniture and even take a few steps. Some babies may already be walking by 12 months of age, but if your child is not, there is no need to be concerned.


Babbling
Baby babbles are music to a parent's ears. By the 1-year mark, your child should be able to say a couple basic words like "Mama" or "Dada." He or she is likely still speaking gibberish, and this is completely normal. He or she can likely understand a few words that you say. It is only time to be concerned if your child is not vocal at all or does not respond to your voice.


Playing
Your 1-year-old child is likely starting to show some personality, and this is one of the most treasured times for a parent. When playing together, your child should be able to pick up toys independently and interact with them. He or she may get into a phase or throwing or dropping toys to see how they will respond. This can be a messy time but also a fun one!

Watching your child grow up can often be bittersweet. When you celebrate each new milestone, though, you can look forward to a lifetime of cheering on your child for his or her many accomplishments.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
