Yup, totally agree. Babies are busy byt I found from 18 mth-2.5 Def harder. Mind I was pregnant and had another baby in that time which prob didn't help. However from 3 upwards has been joyous (with that odd moment of despair!)
I hated the baby stage, especially the newborn stage. I found it a million times easier when they turned one and it seemed to get better and better until 2.5 then they turned into Satan spawn! I am so glad to hear it is better once they turn 3 cadenza, 3 months to go!
Hi, my dd's are 8. They were better after 3, less tantrums, better able to express themselves, plus nursery 2 days a week . I found there was a lot of 'boundary pushing' at the age of 6, coupled with more arguing between them, but that's much better now, fingers crossed
