Welcome to the first installment of a new monthly feature here at Babble — Your Beautiful Toddler.
As the parent of a fabulously-ornery toddler myself, I know that I can sometimes get caught up in moments of frustration.
Yes, there are tantrums, and missed naps, and crayon marks to clean off the walls, but wow — toddlers are amazing.
This month our Your Beautiful Toddler theme was JOY. I asked my Facebook fans to submit photos of their toddlers that capture the true spirit of joy, and they did not disappoint.
Check out this gorgeous gallery filled with images that really show us the bright, smiling, joyful soul of toddlers!
If you would like to show the world YOUR beautiful toddler, be sure to become a fan of Dear Crissy on Facebook, and keep an eye out for our monthly request for YBT submissions!
