My daughter is super stubborn, wants to do everything herself, doesnt like her diaper changed or anything for that matter if its not on her terms. She doesnt want to be read to or taught anything, she is always on the move and doesnt like to be held down. She is 10 months old. What are your kids personalities like (include your older children too if you have any) and how old are they?
Is it normal for her to be so strong willed? She has been that way since she was about 5 months. Im kind of worried I'm going to have problems with her bc she is so stubborn. I joke with my mom that she isnt a lover, shes a fighter, lol.
James is kind of laid back but he definitly is developing his own personality. He hates having his diaper changed too because he does not like to be laying down, and he wants to be standing up like a big boy, so we do our dressing changes standing up.
He loves to be rocked and snuggled, he is a pretty happy, smiley child almost every time, except when he is teething he gets clingy and wants to be held all the time (which I don't mind).
Reading time is usually around nap and bedtime and he seems to like it, he chews on the book or licks it. At other times is hard to having sitting still, loves singing, pat a cake, and doing anything that keeps him moving.
I had to laugh at your post, cause she sounds just like my dd at that age! She has been independent and strong-willed from literally day one. Things had to be her way, all the time. Didn't like to sleep because she was so nosy, she was afraid she would miss something, LoL. I had three boys after her, and i find them SO much easier. That being said, though, my dd is super-smart, crazy independent, stubborn, confident, athletic and talented. She makes me so proud!
My youngest, Cooper, is my snuggle-bug! Easy to please, totally laid-back, great sleeper....cuddly, sweet, always smiling; his favorite thing to do in the world is give hugs and kisses (see why I love boys? =)) c
JT is a very outgoing baby, he has not had any stranger anxiety. He is very active never in one spot unless he is VERY tired or sick. He is always smiling and happy but he will whine some when he wants something he can't have or when he is doing something he shouldn't be doing and he is stopped. He is very curious about everything and is always exploring to learn new things. That pretty much sums up my little man. :-D
Jeremy is very easy going and a go with the flow baby usually very giggly and always laughing . However when someone sneezes or he doesn't like something he screams as tho he is in pain. he is very clingy with myself and my husband, we joined a gym and Jeremy has to stay w my mil he has a full blown panic attack with the women in the ctr. He can be very dramatic at times and very very determined. By all means he is wonderful but he is alot more energetic than my other ones and requires all my attention at all times. I'm certainly not complaining because at some point he will be in school and a big boy and will be so independant he won't want anything to do with me!
Medina is my cheeky girl. Sometimes when she does something, she turns her head and looks at me and grins - just like her Dad!! She is extremely clingy at the moment, sometimes it is difficult to put her down and go to the toilet, this started when we came back to Berlin last week. She is extremely alert and attentive, takes notice of practically every single sound. She hates getting her diaper changed too, but I think that's rather normal. She is extremely active and is my little worm wiggling and moving everywhere, pulls and cruising. I'm guessing when she walks it won't get easier! She loves books and especially goes crazy over Winnie the Pooh and cats and dogs (we have two cats).
