At this particular time of your child's age, what issues would you say that are the most challenging for you?
My oldest son is 2.5 and we have hit a calm, for the past few weeks he has been really easy. He was cutting molars and finally has had a break from that. The hardest part at the moment is his energy and keeping up with him. My youngest is 11 months and is going through a growth spurt and cutting more teeth so has been waking up so much at night to eat and cry, he's walking and climbing on things and constantly keeping me up and moving. I feel so physically exhausted.
Trying to teach her to "be nice" to the dog, she always pulls on him. She's 7 months. I can't really think of anything else. She doesn't sleep through the night, but it's not really a big problem for us.
She is 17 months today. She still does not sleep through the night but that is not a big deal. The biggest issue is when she does not get her way or what she wants. She does not have tantrum but for about a 1 or 2 minutes at the most she will fuss loudly to let you know she is not happy. Good news is she moves quickly past the frustration.
She is 8 months, I guess teething is tough right now. Otherwise she has been a super easy laid back baby. She has made this first time mom thing really easy on me.
The tantrums and not wanting naps have begun. She's two months shy of two years old, but the terrible twos have already begun.
