comment Best way of expressing “for all I know” in German
I think "soweit/soviel ich weiß" are absolutely fine. Sometimes one language has several ways to express something whereas another language does on have one way. So, I don't see any significant difference between "For all I know" and "as far as I know". Anyway, in German you could also go with "Meinem Wissen nach"; though, this is the literal translation of "to my knowledge".

comment Can I use “gehen” to describe a toddler's walking?
If she's walking, she's walking. No need to take another word just because it's a baby. However, depending on how she moves forward there are certainly different words to tell that. Same applies to English.

comment How do you say “You are something”?
I know this expression in an humorous way only. However, @Robert, I'm not sure how OP it really meant. Might be that my knowledge of English is too little and I don't see any obvious connotation in "You're something", but for me it's not clear if this is meant to be ironically or upset or really simply encouragingly.

comment What is the difference between “mischen” and “vermischen”
Depends on context. A generic answer might be that vermischen is rather "to mix up, muddle, and/or confuse" while mischen is more deliberate. However, there certainly quite a many contexts that proves me wrong on that.
