Did you find that your second or third child tended to hit milestones earlier or later than the first?
I always thought that Baby Bug would learn things more quickly because she loves imitating Girlie Girl. She wants to be just like her big sister.
However, at 2 ½ she still isn’t close to being potty trained, she can’t properly use utensils, and I can barely understand her at times. Add to the mix that she’s short for her age, and I tend to forget that she’s not a baby anymore. In fact, she’ll be 3 in just a few months!
In a way I’m secretly glad that she’s taking her time because I’m not sure I’m ready to have her grow up on me just yet. And as much as I look forward to her starting pre-school so I can have some quiet time to myself, I know I’ll miss having my little companion around.
So, I guess I’ll continue to savor every unrecognizable word she says because I know that one day I’ll look back and miss having a baby in the house.
