These last few days, Sean’s personality has blossomed. I swear it happened over night. As if he just woke up one morning and thought, Hmm, I’m going to stop being a baby now and I think I’ll be this kind of person from now on.
His baby grumpy-ness has changed into a persistence and determination. He wants to do things his way, he wants it now, he wants to be equal to his big brother, and he will throw massive tantrums if he doesn’t get it.
He’s baby clingy-ness has subsided to show a timid and introverted nature. He doesn’t like new places, new people or exploring. He prefers to sit in the lounge room with a book, knowing there’s somebody nearby, and wants a cuddle from mum every so often.
His baby giggles has transformed into beautiful boyish chuckles. Always laughing at his favourite games and favourite people.
I’m sure this personality development is all part of him learning how to communicate. I’m loving it!
And as sappy as it sounds, for me, watching him suddenly become a little person in front of my eyes is definitely one of the best rewards of being a stay at home mum.
