It's been a while since we've described our LO's overall personality traits...Does your LO seem more this or that?

Calm or excitable?

Easygoing or demanding?

Likes a routine or a routine doesn't matter?

Early bird or night owl?

Headstrong or subdued?

Introverted or extraverted?

Mostly happy, grumpy or in-between?

Could be a competetive eater or just likes to snack?

Enjoys physical play or intellectual play the most?

Best thing about your toddler at this age?

The thing you could do without at this age?

Anything else that you'd like to add about your LO?

Calm or excitable? It really depends. Mostly he is calm, but my older ds can get him to go crazy. Lol

Easygoing or demanding? Mostly easygoing

Likes a routine or a routine doesn't matter? He likes his routine

Early bird or night owl? Early bird

Headstrong or subdued? headstrong

Introverted or extraverted? mostly introverted

Mostly happy, grumpy or in-between? happy

Could be a competetive eater or just likes to snack? in the middle

Enjoys physical play or intellectual play the most? he loves physical play

Best thing about your toddler at this age? He is so goofy and funny.

The thing you could do without at this age? Him throwing things. I have started taking things away when he throws them, but so far it isn't helping.

Anything else that you'd like to add about your LO? He is a ham. He loves attention, but gets shy if strangers look directly at him.

physical the most

Best thing about your toddler at this age?
The new cute things she is learning to do and say

The thing you could do without at this age?
The tantrums and freak-outs

Anything else that you'd like to add about your LO?
Everyone that meets Livi says "She knows what she wants that is for sure" She can get really frustrated if I cannot understand what she wants. She is VERY charming and Charismatic and takes the attention every time. She can be very physical....which is different from my first and seems like my 3rd will be different too. She will hit, bite, pinch, scratch etc when she is frustrated. She has specific ways she likes things done and can be very particular - high maintenance that is for sure.

She can be the most sweetest lovey, cuddly caring child... But then can change so quickly. I like to call her passionate. LOL My other two kids are very calm and quiet....esp. compared to her.

Easygoing or demanding? Fairly demanding

Likes a routine or a routine doesn't matter? Could care less about a routine

Early bird or night owl? Night owl

Headstrong or subdued? Headstrong

Introverted or extraverted? Mix, prob. slightly more introverted around ppl she is just meeting, but quickly becomes extroverted

Mostly happy, grumpy or in-between? Mostly happy

Anything else that you'd like to add about your LO? Vi is very much the typical baby of the family right now. She likes attention on her and she gets mad if anyone ignores her, etc. She's used to Lily and everyone else taking care of her a lot. She's extremely similar to me as a toddler, except my tantrums were a lot worse. Little worried about how she'll do with the new baby.

Calm or excitable? excitable

Easygoing or demanding? she can be both, it depends on her mood

Likes a routine or a routine doesn't matter? she is very used to her routine, but luckily she's flexible with it if we're out and about

Early bird or night owl? early bird for sure! We were up at 6:20 this morning

Headstrong or subdued? headstrong

Introverted or extraverted? extraverted, but a little shy with strangers sometimes

Mostly happy, grumpy or in-between? she's a very happy girl!

Could be a competetive eater or just likes to snack? competitive eater here

Enjoys physical play or intellectual play the most? both, but mostly physical play, she loves to climb things and jump on things, loves when we chase her around, etc. she only recently has started being more interested in books and puzzles and coloring and those type of things.

Best thing about your toddler at this age? How much fun we have together and how many new things she can do now. She's really talking a lot these days too which I love!

The thing you could do without at this age? The attitude she gets if I tell her no or ask her to stop. She's very stubborn.

Anything else that you'd like to add about your LO?

Calm or excitable? Depends on what's going on, but more often than not she's pretty excitable. She's a mover and a shaker

Easygoing or demanding? Demanding, no question. She wants what she wants and she wants it 10 minutes ago.

Likes a routine or a routine doesn't matter? Routine is good but she's fairly flexible. I've always let her set her own schedule, especially with sleep/naps. Once we figured out what worked best we could all go along with it no problem. She goes along with whatever we're doing pretty well too though.

Early bird or night owl? Is it possible to be both? Kaija was still going to bed at 7 when she was this age. Kolbie is in bed at 8:30, so it's weird to me! And yet she's up at 6:30. I know that's not nearly as late as many of our LOs but it's strange for me!

Headstrong or subdued? Headstrong. Do not, under any circumstance, attempt to help her when she's trying to do something her self. You've been warned.

Introverted or extraverted? Both here too. It really just depends on who she's with.

Mostly happy, grumpy or in-between? Kolbie's a very happy girl. Unless she just woke up then forget it.

Could be a competetive eater or just likes to snack? About once a week she could be a competetive eater, other wise snacks are about all that she wants. And that's fine. She's a big girl!

Enjoys physical play or intellectual play the most? Very much both. Kolbie and Kaija will run around and wrestle and play most of the day. But they also will take some time to sit and read and color together. It's awesome!

Best thing about your toddler at this age? She's so stinkin' smart. I am constantly amazed by the things she does! Watching the learning process has always fascinated me.

The thing you could do without at this age? The fits. She doesn't really throw tantrums but she does get frustrated if she can't figure something out. And she's stubborn and won't let anyone help her.

Anything else that you'd like to add about your LO? It's so awesome to have 2 little girls this close in age. Kaija has really become a great big sister and enjoys helping and playing with her little sister. Kolbie loves to follow her big sister around and learns so much from her. Watching them together is so fun!

Calm or excitable?
Both - he is pretty calm but can get very wound up if he hears music or is with other kids. Or playing with daddy - he gets really excited about that!

Easygoing or demanding?
Pretty easygoing. If he wants something he can't have I can usually redirect him.

Likes a routine or a routine doesn't matter?
Likes his routine. He is pretty scheduled. But he is flexible enough that he can go with the flow if we need to change things.

Early bird or night owl?
Early bird for sure! The boy is usually up at 6 am. At night he asks to go to bed because he is tired. And keeping him up at night doesn't make him sleep any later.

Headstrong or subdued?
Headstrong when it is something he wants.

Introverted or extraverted?
Extraverted - everyone is a friend. Even strangers.

Mostly happy, grumpy or in-between?
Very happy almost all the time.

Could be a competetive eater or just likes to snack?
Snacks. He grazes. He could be in a competetive milk drinking competition though!

Enjoys physical play or intellectual play the most?
A little of both. He loves to read books with mommy and daddy but also loves to jump on his little trampoline!

Best thing about your toddler at this age?

He is so fun to watch him learn. He is talking a lot and able to communicate better.

The thing you could do without at this age?
Not listening! He will not always follow instructions and stay out of things he can't have!

Anything else that you'd like to add about your LO?
Jed is so loving and cute! I know he is smart (and I'm not biased at all). He just loves his little sister and he has really just been an easy baby and toddler.
