Did this happen to you? My son has become a little boy overnight!

I feel like I woke up this morning and my 14 month old son is saying things like "Bubble" and "Blue." I give him simple orders and he follows them. I ask him to go get cookie monster and he gets the exact toy and holds it up. I call him into the room and when he won't come I say "You can have a spoon if you come" (He loves spoons for some reason) and he comes running! I say "Shoes" and he looks down at his shoes right away. I guess this doesn't exactly sound like I should be filling out the application for mensa, but he was just a little baby yesterday I swear! What happened? Where did the baby go?

  • It's amazing, isn't it? Seems like we somehow think they are blobs and suddenly they are actually intelligent! LOL
    Our son suddenly starting calling us Mom and Dad. No more mommy and daddy. I had a few days of sadness over that one!

  • I used to ask the same thing about my kids. My daughter is 22, and I wonder where my little girl went, and my son is 11 and he's acting like a teenager! I never really believed that kids grow up so fast, until mine did! Enjoy every moment,Hon!

  • Just wait until he reaches puberty! I swear I put my little boy to bed one night and the next morning a man walked out of his bedroom.

    It goes fast so enjoy the toddler years.

  • Right now my son is almost 3. He is getting sooo smart. He's remembers stuff from weeks, and months ago. He is doing his best to be as self sufficent as possible. Its sad but good. I miss his baby days.
