Your baby: 20 months 2 weeks

Posted by Picasa
Today when we got to Daycare, Ms. Sonia, stopped me and told me that Lincoln was moving up to the next class. I had a feeling this was coming. We have been seeing the signs of the "two's". This was from Babycenter today: You've been warned about the "terrible twos," but you may be unprepared for this rite of passage if your child has been cooperative up until now. The stage doesn't always begin exactly on your child's second birthday. Development experts say it can strike as early as 18 months and as late as 30 months (though some angelic children never go through this phase). How do you know if you're in the midst of the TTs? Look for new signs of assertiveness from your toddler. Hallmark behaviors to watch for: He may insist on doing exactly what you've told him not to do or throw himself down on the floor in a fit of temper if he doesn't get his way. His demands may alternately frustrate and amuse you. At times, for example, he'll likely ask for something that he doesn't even want, just to see if he has enough power to get it.Again, I swear these people are watching my kids! Nate busted out the Pack-N-Play for "timeout" this weekend. He was playing with the plugs and would not stop! Remember when he was my layed back little angel. Now, he will do anything to make his brother laugh even if we have told him NO a million times! Thank goodness he is so darn cute!
