This is the developing age in which his vocabulary skills are increasing and he is learning new things.
Weight and height
The average weight of your 29-month-old has to be around 28.4 pounds for girls and the boys should have the weight around 29.6 pounds. This is not a concrete weight. It might be around this weight. But if it is a little too much or very less than the standard weight, then you should consult a doctor and make sure there is nothing wrong with your kid. The height of your toddler must be around 35.3 inches for a girl and 37.5 inches for a boy.

Your kid might also be acquiring new habits and it is easier for you to make him learn the attitudes he should adopt and the new etiquettes you want him to adopt.
Your toddler can now have knowledge about dressing. He would tell you what he wants to wear and might also try to do it himself.
