Developing a unique personality

The toddler years can certainly be a challenge. When I have been asked in the past what the mostΒ difficult stage has been, I always answer the same. Without a doubt, 18 months to three years (I’m yet to have a teenager though so this might change).

At the same time however, if I am asked what my favourite age is then really the answer is the same.

The rate of change at this age is phenomenal:

  • New words everyday
  • New skills everyday
  • New facial expressions or reactions everyday
  • Daily changeable likes and dislikes
  • A better understanding of the world everyday

These little people have to process all of this in record time – it is no wonder really that their behaviour is challenging and night terrors can begin.

One of the truly wonderful things about this age is watching a little personality develop. A personality which is inspired and influenced by aspects of others close to them, but one that is nonetheless unique to that child.

This little guy has been rocking this look almost daily this week having seen his brother dressing up as Clark Kent/Superman.


He is developing a real sense of humour and unique sense of style and I’m loving every second of the show.

What personality traits are your little ones developing at the moment?

  1. Fab post. From my point of view I have never found two toddlers that are the same. I love seeing what little traits they come up with. It’s definitely fun to see. I’d love a glimpse in the future to have a look and see if they still are like it. Thanks for linking up with us on the #bigfatlinky hope to see you there this week

  2. I totally agree – this is such a difficult age! I love that photo – what a cutie πŸ™‚ My favourite so far is age 7 to 8. Grace is such good company these days and we have some great conversations. Thanks for linking to #PoCoLo

  3. You are so right, it’s a challenging but amazing age and funnily enough my youngest hasn’t been anywhere near as ‘hard work’ as her sister was, presumably because I am more confident this time round! xx

  4. I have a little lady at that age, the rate they learn is amazing. My eldest had night terrors, and they were really upsetting for all of us, they didnt last long though thankfully. I love the photo x
