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….

    COOL!

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?
