My Favorite Age - What's Yours?

Little Bean is entering my favorite stage of babyhood! 9 months. He has a few weeks to go but already exhibiting everything I love about this age.

I may joke about him getting into trouble now that he’s crawling but the truth is: I love it! He’s shows an interest in everything. He’s still small enough to wear. He can’t talk back (I can appreciate this with a six-year-old in the house.) He’s easily distracted by the simplest things. And he smiles ALL. THE. TIME.

Case in point: While writing this I planned to snap a quick picture of him playing on the floor to use in the post. He noticed and just HAD to come and investigate….

    Uh Oh. He's caught a glimpse.
  • 3. 3 of 8
    And here he comes!
  • 4. 4 of 8
  • 5. 5 of 8
    Help me up Mom!
  • 6. 6 of 8
    What is this contraption with all the buttons!
  • 7. 7 of 8
    Can I play?
  • 8. 8 of 8

How cute was that? He just want to check out everything!

Of course there are things I don’t like about this stage: The separation anxiety, the back arching, the crying when you have to take something away, but — and I learned this from my first — parenting will never be as fun or as easy as it is right now. It only gets more complicated as they get older. I still love it, but it’s not as simple. Moms of older kids, do you agree?

Do you have favorite age? What do you like about it?
