Our second child is officially a 16-month-old toddler. Actually, her body just seems to have caught up with her mindset; she clearly thinks she’s far older than she really is and wants to keep up with her 4.5-year-old brother.

If you have any “big kids” like us, you know that mobility changes the parenting game, big-time.
