  1. Normal gross motor skills, delayed fine motor skills. Approximately half of 18-month-old children are able to run and climb stairs, but they would not be expected to jump or throw a ball overhand until approximately 2 years of age. However, at 18 months, children should be able to put a block in a cup and scribble, and most can build a tower of at least 2 blocks.
