Officially A Toddler

My little one is now officially a toddler. Yes, he has been walking for months and is babbling up a storm, but I really put his toddlerhood to the test today.

We went to toddler storytime at the library.

I was worried that we’d get dirty looks from the parents of more established toddlers whose children sit the whole time and listen intently to the story. We have been going to “Baby, Books and Bounce Time”, where babies are expected to make noise and crawl all over the place. We love it, but when the “new generation” started coming in and my little walking, talking, gotta check everything out, 15 month old boy was up against a handful of 2 month old babies, I thought it was time to move on.

So we made the leap and to my shock, he sat and listened to the story while the parents of those big kids chased their children around trying to coax them to sit. He checked everyone out with his little legs crossed, like a perfect little sweetheart.

For almost 15 whole minutes.

I was so proud I could hardly keep from smiling when he had finally had enough and made a dive for some little girl’s goldfish.
