I had forgotten how tough this 15 month old stage is with a toddler who is quite physically adept but can’t talk. To be fair, Stella had quite a few more words than Harvey does at this point, but I think 15 months is universally difficult with kids because they’re learning so much every day but don’t really have the communication skills to go with that knowledge. We spend a lot of time saying “show us what you want Harvey” as he points and says UGHHHHHH or AGHHHHH or bursts into tears yet again because his silly parents just don’t get it.
On the upside, he’s also very much a mama’s boy, so even when I’m trying to get a few minutes of rest, I don’t really mind when he toddles in and says “ahhhhh” to be lifted up onto the bed in order to snuggle with me. He’s a great cuddling partner. <3
