Righty or Lefty?

She uses a spoon with her left hand
She colors with her right hand
She brushes her teeth with her left hand
She plays with toys using both hands
She picks up things using both hands
She waves with both hands
She claps with both hands, lol (duh)

Based on what I've read, some children might start to favor one hand or the other as early as 6-9 months old. But, we probably won't know for sure if she is a righty or lefty until age two or three when most children start to consistently favor the same hand. Still, there are those children that are ambidextrous until age five or six when they finally make a choice. On the other side of things, if a child under 18 months exclusively uses only one hand, then that could be a sign of a development issue.

So, for Christina, it seems as though anything is possible at this point. It is fun to watch her and try to guess though. What do you think she will be?
