Can your LO put on their own shoes and/or take them off? Can they put on and/or take off their shirt? Can they put on and/or take off their shorts?
DS turns into a floppy fish when it is time to get dressed or undressed. He can pull a shirt off over his head if I've already helped him pull his arms out. He just has no interest and does not try, even when I sit there instructing him and cheering him on.
Can your LO put on their own shoes and/or take them off? Definitely but they are just slip on Native shoes. Nothing that requires socks... she's going to hate winter.
Can they put on and/or take off their shirt? I have to help her but she puts her arms in, straight over her head and then I help "wiggle" the shirt down over her head.
Can they put on and/or take off their shorts? Mostly, sort of, she tries when we're potty training to get them off herself but she's also already usually 1 step up the step stool so I help her. She is better at putting them on.
DD likes to be naked, again - she went through a near zero nudity phase, so getting her dressed is a PITA. She ranges from being able to do about half to most of it herself depending on her interest level in getting dressed.

DS can put on and take off shorts/pants and shoes (though half the time shoes get put on the wrong foot haha). The only thing he can do with shirts is follow my "arms up" command to help me. Occasionally he can get a onesie off but he pulls them down over his shoulders and steps out of them. He can't lift a shirt over his head alone though.
No. My DD has always kind of fallen short on the independence milestones, and it's probably my fault. Maybe montessori school? The problem is that she is just too busy doing other things, so if I want her to get dressed, I have to just do it. She has recently started to want to put on her clothes and shoes, but she puts her head into the head hole first with shirts and just doesn't have the finesse to do her shoes, which are tennis shoes. She can pull up her pants, but not anything without elastic.
