That first step is such a ‘Whahoo!’ moment! You look up and there he goes, one wobbly foot after the other, and he’s not holding on! This miraculous little being has done something incredible. That’s when you know: You’ve got a walkabout baby!
Pack that walker away and find some sturdy shoes (for you)! Life is changing yet again. Playgrounds, crayons, the word ‘No!’ and more cute little clothes (and toys) are coming your way. If you haven’t yet, this is a great time to join a play group, take a mommy & me class or make your first library trip for pre-school storytime.
Every child has his or her own unique temperament, yet even the sunniest child can surprise you with a bad day. The pendulum swings between what people call equilibrium and disequilibrium. Your cheerful, cooperative little one will suddenly have difficuty choosing, clumsiness and some frustration. It's an important and normal cycle in the growing process!
They will navigate their way, and learn new skills, which is exactly what every parent wants!
An outing can take a lot of planning. A change of clothes? Check. A favorite blanket or doggie? Double-check. Maybe you pop in special toys to keep car rides quieter, easy snacks for little fingers, a bottle or drink, diapers, wipes…
You get there, set up the stroller and out comes a shower of crumbs. You give it a shake but bits of mystery food won’t budge. Now’s the time to remember Baby ECOS Stain & Odor Remover. Natural enzymes dissolve stroller dirt in the same way sunlight and rain break things down in nature. That once-pristine stroller will soon be shiny and clean again!
Learning colors takes time, but it's so much fun! Here is a downloadable coloring page specifically designed to help very young children begin to learn.
Directions: Looking for strategies? Lay a matching crayon on each picture, repeating the color("Orange,yellow,green," etc.) Your child will probably begin by joyfully scribbling everywhere on the paper, but in time, they will learn!
