The first time it happens, you don’t expect it. Your baby looks at you, sticks out their tongue and makes a gentle razzing sound. It’s almost impossible not to smile and make a raspberry back at them. Just try.
Some experts refer to toddlerhood as the first adolescence. I agree with this apt observation. Adolescence is a time of growth, pushing boundaries and moving to a new stage of life.
Some babies fall asleep almost before you’re out of the driveway, but others won’t spend five happy minutes in their car seats. Usually, this is because your baby is used to more freedom of movement and more physical attention than you can provide when she’s belted into her seat.
Ready or not your baby is coming! As a new mommy, there will be a lot of uncertainty (and possibly tons of unanticipated guilt!). Am I doing this right? Is my baby eating too often, not often enough? Is my child sleeping enough, pooping enough? Is their poop supposed to be that color? At times, you may think you are doing it all wrong.
