30 Things that are MORE FUN with Toddlers
I love babies, I do. I love the newborn stage. I wish it lasted an entire year or more. I love when babies begin to babble. I love the magic of the first year. I love it all. But I will say, the toddler stage is awesome too. Toddlers (minus their irrational behavior and demanding opinions) are so great. They have a love of life that is infectious! And let’s be honest – some stuff is just more fun with a toddler!
