Here on the blog I lovingly call my daughter Exuberant Girl. I feel like she's been this way since she was very little, with her eyes wide open even in the first moments after birth.
But now I wonder if I've given her a temperament without letting her 'grow into her own'?
Our little girl has always been open to new things. At her one month appointment she was arms up in cobra pose already, craning her neck to see what was going on in the world. Recently, as in yesterday, she tried to climb the chainlink fence at the park- yup all before 16 months old.
She's not afraid of virtually anything. We went camping and she chased after the deer. When she falls down she might cry, but then less than 60seconds later she's charging up and ready to go out and do it again.
The teachers at school tell me how social she is. She like to run to the other kids, and whenever we go to the park she's constantly playing with the other children (even if she's 12momths and they are 8 years!)
Are these traits set in stone? Is it true that she's really exuberant? How was your child when they were born?
