  • Um, no. Mine is 13 mos. and I couldn't be happier. For me, the baby stage was excruciating. She had colic, I worked full-time on top of getting no sleep. ugh, it sends shivers down my spine just thinking about it. If she could have come out being 1 years old it would have been just perfect.

  • I was a little sad, but once I started plaining his party and stuff it got better and now I am excited, my son is turing 1 on friday, I just am happy for him now that he is more independent.
