A few days ago, I came into my son's room in the morning and said "Hi, Baby!", as I always do. T
o which he replied - "No Baby. BOY."
Well, how did that happen?!!
Nicky is clearly no longer a baby, yet nowhere near the grown and independent person that he wants to be. Each day he is conquering new skills (like putting on his jacket or drawing a straight line) while constantly testing his boundaries. And although it can be difficult for all parties involved (hello, temper tantrums), it is amazing to teach him and watch him learn.
However, one thing I have figured out about toddlers is that you have to have them constantly engaged in something, especially at home. Otherwise, they start coming up with their own activities and that can turn into a mess of cosmic proportions. Luckily, there are so many toys available for this age group, so I picked out some of our current favorites to share with you.
