I wasn't even thinking that this was a milestone, but I came across it in what to expect. DS is almost 2.5 and cannot jump. He thinks he's jumping when he's asked or says he's jumping, but he's pretty much hopping up and down without getting any air.

Anyone have a late jumper?

My dd is almost 2 1/2 and she's trying to jump but her feet don't leave the ground quite yet. I know she'll get it eventually. You can always get an EI evaluation if you are concerned.
I had dd evaluated and she was slightly behind but not far enough to warrant services.

It's such a broad window for these milestones.  The LO across the street from us could walk unassisted at 9mos, up and down stairs -standing like an adult with no railings - at 10mos.  My 2yo still does the kneeling stair thing and only gets one foot off the ground jumping - if she gets both up you can bet she's landing on her butt!  So long as they develop some of these milestones on time, the others will follow.  Some kids are movement oriented, for others it language, and others fine motor skills.  For us we've got a talker/climber ;)
