All Boy

Men and women are wired differently and it is apparent even as young as 13 months old.

I definitely have a son!

Lucas has become a very active, very loud, outgoing, fearless, rambunctious little boy.

It feels like he is on the move from sun up until sun down. Actually, it doesn't feel that way all at, it is that way. There have been many days recently that he has been on a nap protest making for a 13 hour day. IF he does take a nap, it's from 10:00 - 11:30, which still makes for a very VERY l o n g afternoon. Where he gets his energy, I have no clue!

No matter how you slice it, he doesn't want to miss a thing and is really into screaming, or rather screeching, throwing, pushing, brushing off and sometimes having a full blown temper tantrum until he gets his way or moves on to something else.

Um, can you say: challenging, exhausting and often confusing?

I thought that the terrible twos (or threes) were a little ways off. Could my little monster be getting a head start? And what's with the no naps? Please tell me that this phase will soon pass! I rely on these naps and know he needs them too.

Any useful tips, tricks or insight into the toddler male
(or adult male, for that matter) mind would be much appreciated. :)

The best is yet to be?
