my daughter is very caring, sweet, but can also be a bit feisty sometimes, she wears her emotions on her skin like a sleeve, so there's no raising voices around her, no yelling, I do not spank either, she doesn't say a lot of clear words yet but she does say parts of words, she is very smart and observant and needs constant attention. we spend our days playing outside, singing and dancing, eating lots of food and cuddling. She also has an attachment to hair and her BoBo (stuff toy), she needs them when she needs to be consoled or is feeling cuddly, when she is ready to take a nap and go to bed you pretty much just need to lay with her and give her your hair. she'll rub it and wrap a strand of hair around her BoBo. when she passes out you are free to let her sleep on her own. I'm currently potty training her as well but she still wears diapers.
