If I've learned one thing with our second child, it's "let it go". Wait! Not what you're thinking, it's not in a bad way. I mean let it go, as in allowing the baby/child to be his or her self.
(Obviously safety comes first, so I'm not saying to let go of all)
but, rather let them be 'little movers',
explore, run, scream. laugh, jump, be stubborn, independent, etc.
Even when it's not the most convenient for you as a parent.
I have realized how much these little ones need to be their own self.
They need to learn and grow and sometimes that takes a lot from us parents.
I finally captured my little one for more than a few seconds.
She was exhausted from being at the pool all day!
And...... she couldn't stay and snuggle for long, shes already on the go!
Our little one is constantly on the go, go, go. She can't hold still for more than a few minutes.
Running, climbing, jumping, falling, she just doesn't stop. She's so independent right now too.
At first it was a bit hard for me to get used to. I tried to stop her, slow her down, etc.
My first was so opposite, so this was all new to me. I realized how uniquely different each child is, and how different we must parent.
I started to allow her to be more adventurous (even if it gave me heart attacks, ha ha!)
Rather than get frustrated with her, or embarrassed about how loud she was or how busy she was in public, I started to praise her and encourage her to explore, but be careful at the same time.
It's not easy, its still a struggle, but it's so much better, and we are all happy.
