Watching My Child’s Personality Grow



As soon as my daughter started to crawl, she was on the move and ready to explore. Nothing and no one could get in her way of exploring her surroundings. From a very early age she adapted a fearless mind and despite my fears of her getting hurt or being overly confident, I am glad she is the way she is.

She is now almost sixteen months old and this past weekend we met up with friends who have a three-year old at a local bookstore. We traveled to the children’s section where there is even a place for the children to play and for the parents to sit back and sip some coffee.

Most baby girls at this age would try to sit close to their mother or pick up some books and read. No, not my daughter, she decided to walk up to the three-year old boys playing with trains. She looked at them in the face and smiled as she took their trains away from them. One boy tried taking it away from her and she clearly did not allow that to happen.

As she enjoyed playing with them, it brought such a big smile to my face to see that my daughter is comfortable and fearless in her own skin.

Do you remember at what age you started to see your children’s personalities grow?

  1. My second son’s personality was obvious from when he was in utero! He used to kick me with a vengeance (towards the end of the pregnancy, I would actually emit a sound, because the force was so intense), plus he refused to be born for 2 long weeks past his due date. Sure enough, he is opinionated, strong-willed and does things his own way. Luckily, he never kicked me once he was out.

  2. Thinking back, it was clear from an early age– maybe even 6 months old– that my boys had very different personalities. I didn’t notice it with my first at that age, but comparing how they acted even as babies and how they act now at 2 and 4, I think that did certainly shine though at an early age. It’s really fun to see who they are as they grow! 🙂
