my dd is 23 months and i often wonder if she is a little over active. she will run and run and run in circles, jumping off everything but it gets to the point where she is tired but doesnt seem to be able to stop herself moving.
my ds is the same (22 months) to be honest i think all young toddlers are the same. I used to worry about it too as my ds is just never ever still unless he's asleep. He's busy all the time, gets bored very easily and just needs a lot of freedom to move and explore. 10 minutes in a highchair and he's ready to get out and run.
even when dd is falling asleep she will lie with her eyes shut and then suddenly open her eyes and shout "boo" and laugh hysterically, or she will kick her feet constantly till the falls asleep. also the more tired she gets the more mischievous, she will pick up a handful of papers and scatter them just for the sake of it and throw her milk cup. i think it is just normal toddler behaviour hi meandjoe, we used to chat ages ago.
yes I remember you ilovetochat! Sounds like our dcs are still quite similar which is a comfort but none the less infuriating at times !
DS does the kicking his legs and juffling about thing when he's going to sleep. He has also started 'humping' the matress and giggling til he goes to sleep too (not so sure that's normal but it doesn't worry me too much, I think he just finds movement comforting) He was like it even as a newborn I had to keep him in motion all the time! Bouncing him, rocking him, walking with him etc, at least now he does all the moving himself! Although I do sometimes worry that he never seems to stop!
dd sings herself to sleep a lot or asks to be tickled? she giggles then goes to sleep, strange. it is good now she talks and understands a lot now though as i can explain things a bit and tell her what we are doing, not that she listens
