What 18 months is like..
I know they always warn you about the terrible twos, but I'm not sure if anyone told you it all starts at 18 months. Your once cooperative, easy going child turns into a little one with an opinion about everything and wants you to know it. Liam went through this phase as well, and I know that's all it is, but it does make things a little more difficult. Some things Declan no longer likes are putting on a coat, wearing a hat, diaper, pants, you name it he probably doesn't like to wear it. Also he does not like mom or dad to sing or dance so if we do he yells No, stop until we do, which I know it makes him crazy when we do it but I find it kind of hilarious. He also loves cars and must have one, preferably two in his hands at all times or he runs around saying car until we find them and usually he wants a specific one, but which one that is changes all the time. I know it's him just claiming his independence and also being frustrated since he can't always vocalize what he wants or needs, but it's funny how it seems overnight he changed from a cooperative, easy going guy to a strong willed, independent toddler. Time seems to be racing by in the blink on an eye.
