I was so afraid I was going to screw up my child. Guess this is a good resource - she certainly turned out fine! ( )

There was a child went forth every day,
And the first object he looked upon and received with wonder, pity, love or dread, that object he became,
And that object became part of him for the day, or a certain part of the day, or for many years, or stretching cycles of years...
His own parents...
the family usages, the language, the company, the furniture...
Men and women crowding fast in the streets...
These became part ofhttp://www.librarything.com/work/779608/commonknowledge/15105978# that child who went forth every day, and who now goes, and will always go forth every day.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553264389, Paperback)

Your baby's second year is a wondrous and  challenging experience for parents and child as your baby  reaches out physically and emotionally for the  world beyond mommy and daddy -- to friends, to toys,  to sights, sounds, thoughts and  words.

In these twelve months you will see your baby  communicating, identifying, differentiating,  recognizing and remembering.

Your baby  will probably begin to walk alone, run and jump,  play simple instructive games, imitate your  actions, sing and dance to music, and increasingly  demonstrate a desire to "do it  myself."

By the end of this milestone year, your baby  will show an expanding range of emotions and  abiliy to express them, show off for an audience,  probably talk several dozen words and be able to give  as well as receive love.
