  • As a baby up until around 18 months old or so, she'd freak out when she saw a man with any kind of facial hair or a hat on. Even someone on the other end of the aisle in the store, if he had on a hat or facial hair, she'd be scared.

  • Most kids around 10 months hates the sound of the vaccum. They think that it's going to get them or something. My oldest son did it and now my youngest is doing the same thing, They will grow out of it.

  • Animals. She is totally fine with dogs and cats as long as they are not close to her. We have a cat but she hides al day and has no interest whatsoever in being around the kids anyway. But if we visit someone who has a pet and they don't get it outside before it makes the mistake of getting close, she screams and grabs me.

  • My (almost) 18 month DD is afraid of the vacuum, loud noises, the dark, and men. She's also recently started acknowledging the shadows in her room at night cause by the night light and seems to be a little scared of them.
