      Hi Swhawking,

      I would love to be able to understand how babies learn all the things that they have to learn, not only language, but how they learn to crawl, to walk, how do they know what is real from what is pretend, how they start identifying objects, how do they know that a cat is a cat even if they don’t all look the same, for example, some of them are grey, black, white… they can be real or a cartoon, soft toy…. …. … Unfortunately, our time and resources are limited, so I mainly focus on language development, however, I have a project about the links between motor development and language development. I try to find out whether walking helps babies learning new words. I also work a little bit on emotional development, trying to find out when babies are able to recognize emotions.
