At one year old, kids are more curious and are 100x more active than in their smaller, more docile months. They will become much more adventurous, and may wander off on their own to experience new things and get their hands dirty. Let them explore, play with them and don’t be afraid to be silly around them because they won’t be babies forever. As parents, no matter how old our kids get, they will always be our baby – even when they go to college, and have babies of their own! But for now, enjoy their curiosity, embrace their exuberance, and experience their world with them.SONY DSC
