This phase is full of innocence, wonder, curiosity, and joy. Sticky-gooey hands, coloring on everything, and food that never seems to stay on the plate. But within the mess is indescribable joy and glimpses of who your child will become. Forming a secure attachment with your baby will impact the rest of their life.
Sweet discovery is what this phase is made of. It takes patience and endurance as you help your one-year-old learn, develop, and understand what is safe. Your baby is beginning to test his/her independence! They’re forming their own opinions, intellect, and personality. There will come a day when your once-helpless baby will bathe, dress, and feed themselves – but the journey to get there comes with a little mess along the way.
