Charlie doesn’t talk or walk yet. She eats a large portion of her nutritional intake from a bottle and is very small in stature. Because of these things, it is easy to make the mistake of treating her like a baby. I’ve recently realized she has moved past infancy and is now a little girl.
…and I have no idea what I am doing.
I’ve written many times about the difficulty of Charlie no longer being a baby but lacking toddler motor skills. She is interested in the same things as other kids her (actual) age. She wants to play with other kids her age. But, she doesn’t have the motor skills to keep up or communicate with them.
I am lost as to what’s the answer.
I suppose for now, I will try not to think about it too much. We will continue to do what we do best… have fun. I will let Charlie be the guide. Most importantly, I will try not to regress to treating her like an infant. She is now a toddler… and I couldn’t be any prouder.
