My DS is about six and a half months old, and I think this age is just angelic. He's curious and happy and outgoing and responsive. He can entertain himself but can't really get around yet to get into everything. And he's started sleeping well at night.
Every stage with him so far has been easier than the last...but I wonder whether his easiness is a bell curve just waiting to peak and nosedive? Does it go downhill at any point and they start getting difficult again (aside from when they're teenagers, obviously)? Does anyone with older babies look back wistfully at an easier age?
