It's so great to see a post about why toddlers are great!
Why I love my toddler:
---Routine! We have the sweetest bed-time routine where we eat dinner, take a bath, get our p.j.'s on, brush our teeth, pick up toys, and then cuddle up on the couch for 10 minutes to a show/movie (just started the movie part this week). Then we give hugs, kisses, she says "love you mama!" (ahhhh melts my heart) and off to sleep she goes.
---Activities. It's so much fun to do things with her, go to the park and play, 'pretend play,' coloring, sidewalk chalk, etc etc etc. This summer will be such a blast!
---Learning. It's amazing to see her discover new things and learn so much every day! She learns new words all throughout the day now, it seems. I just love watching her learn and grow, she's so curious about everything. :)
---Communication. She can TELL me what she wants and needs (for the most part) and it's not such a guessing game. This was hard for me in the baby stage!
---Sense of humor/personality. She is soooo funny and her personality comes out more and more every day. She is always making me laugh and smile with the silly cute things she does.
My DD is only 21 months old so I have a ways to go still, but yes, I am loving the toddler stage. :)
