In the first three years of life, children transform from total dependency to crawling, reaching, grabbing, walking, talking, smiling, laughing, exploring, manipulating and interacting with other people. It is an understatement to say that growth during this period of time is significant; it is nothing short of extraordinary. From the moment of birth, newborns are learning, growing, and emoting.
