The second year of life is a period of significant importance in a child’s development due to fast occurring achievements in this period. This study meant to explore the developmental acquisitions in children who had completed 2 years of age, noticed by their mothers. It turned out to be a qualitative study, involving five mother-child pairs. The children were between 23 and 26 months old. The participants answered a questionnaire on family contextualization, and a semi-structured interview, in addition to two moments of observation focusing on the mother-child relationship. The results were analyzed according to the method of content analysis, approaching the following categories, language, cognitive skills, motor skills and social-emotional skills.
