What is your favorite age of your little one so far?

How about your least favorite?

It's hard for me to pick but I will say 4-6 months has been fun just because that's when she started smiling more and interacting lots but not totally in to the clingy phase yet. Last favorite I will say newborn, I adored her then but it's just not my favorite age.

Favorite: Probably 4-5 months. She did very well at family functions then and allowed people to hold her.

Least: First 6-8 weeks were really hard for me.

favorite- right now (8 months) despite the fact that he is already mastering the art of hissy fits complete with pinching clawing biting and kicking he is so interactive and freakishly smart right now (well im sure hes probably avg but not being around babies before I wasnt expecting much past poop and snot untill he was at lest 3) but the kid copies everything we do he trys to unscrew soda bottles he unties and trys to retie my shoes he pets the cats he picks things out in the store if i tell him to push a button or grab a certain toy he does so he even helps me check the mail each day he is my oficial mailbox opener.

lest favorite-3-4 months this was a huge huge transition stage for us he started completely refusing bottles and pacis and for a short time he hadnt actually taken to the boobie yet (this is when we switched from EPing to EBF). he was still growing insainly fast he caught his first cold he started refuseing to sleep in his PnP or even cosleep really he would only sleep on top of my chest. it was just a rough time frame for us.

I absolutely adore the newborn phase... I know I'm in the minority there! Least favorite was probably around 3 months when we hit that horrible growth spurt that made him super cranky. But having an older child, I have to say my least favorite age BY FAR has been age 4!!!!

With Mathieu, my least favourite was the first two months - he never. stopped. crying. my favourite is right now he is healthy has no drama going on and is mobile which is a lot of work but also a lot of fun!

I'm not sure that I have a least favorite, this is my first so it's been so great at every phase, I'm loving this age, he's hilarious, getting such a silly personality. But I REALLY loved 4-5m when he really started interacting.

Hmm.. I'm loving the age he is at now. He is still a very high maintenance baby, but he is hilarious and getting more and more fun to play with!

Least favorite.. Newborn. Between Brandon leaving, PPD, and a hard recovery from birth.. It was SO hard on me. That was more due to circumstance than actually how Ares was.. I'm sure I will enjoy mynext newborn much more

I loved and have and will ALWAYS love the newborn phase. I am not to thrilled when they get mobile and especially the late teen years.
However we took all the children a few days ago to the Washington D.C. national zoo and it was adorable to watch Emma hoot and holler and smile at all the animals.
She adored the cows in petting zoo and gorilla. Oh and the seals...LOL
