Does anyone know if sixteen months is a common time for toddlers to develop a strong sense of fear? Over the past week or so Ella has turned into a scardey cat! Tonight she has been deathly afraid of the thunder and comes running and buries her head in my shoulder. She has also started being terrified of bugs for some strange reason and even gets rattled sometimes when our dog barks! Is this a normal thing?
