Motherhood

Now that my son has officially passed the baby stage, he is settling into toddlerhood right on schedule.

It’s amazing how babies grow so fast within the first few years and it’s also amazing how fast they learn and pick up on everything.
My son knows the alphabet by route, and can name the letters out-of-order and an object associated with that letter. He also can count past 10 and is learning to count in Spanish. He knows the basic body parts in English and Spanish and new words are being introduced into his vocabulary every day.
Socially he is very outgoing and friendly, and I believe that he will have a very productive experience when he enters preschool.

Toddlers at the age of two are extremely funny and they have a personality that is infectious.
The interesting thing about toddlers is their curiosity about the world around them. They are into anything and everything.
When I was pregnant, I researched practically every topic I could about pregnancy, delivery, and raising children. I read everything I possibility could about the subject and I must say that no matter how prepared you think you are, it still won’t be enough because you won’t know what to expect until you actually live it, and experience it.

Being a parent is one of the most important, and exciting things that a woman could ever do in her life, but it is also one of the scariest.
Childproofing is a big thing in my home, and no matter how many times we think we have child proofed his room, I can never sit back and relax.

There is never a dull moment in my home. And when I finally think that I have everything covered, my son creates another innovative way to get what he wants.
Climbing over obstacles is the new thing with him. He loves to climb over the gate. I unexpectedly caught him playing in the living room and when I asked him what was he doing he simply said, “I funny,” and smiled.

I caught him standing on top of his toy box the other day, and told him to get down. He told me, “you.” then got down and ran back to play with his toys.
He has moved his crib, and the dresser! I couldn’t believe it. I tried to tie down the furniture and he still managed to move it. My husband and I have rearranged our son’s room at least 5 times in less than a year.
If I could give any new parent any advice about toddlers, I’d say that you must have a sense of humor in order to survive. LOL
