Oh, how they grow so fast! No longer a newborn, no longer a baby. You now have a toddler on your hands! Toddlers are amazing little people. Everything in their world fascinates them and frustrates them at the same time. They yearn to be so independent, yet still need a lot of guidance from you as they try to overcome many hurdles such as potty training, giving up a pacifier, drinking from a regular cup, and learning how to do a little thing called sharing when playing with others. And do we even need to mention the temper tantrums?

Toddlers are very me-centered in that they truly believe the world revolves around them. When you understand the world from a toddler's perspective, it is so much easier to translate their needs and wants. Patience, patience, patience. It takes a lot of patience when dealing with your little toddler.
