(Day 218: Tantrums)
.
Can you hear the whine from looking at this photo? I'm not sure if it's leap 8, teething, or newfound independence but holy crap, welcome to toddlerhood! Charlotte has ALWAYS been the happiest baby ever but wow the past few days have been rough! She's been throwing full-blown, arch her back, crocodile tear tantrums over the littlest things that never used to phase her before like diaper changes and being seated in her high chair. I've been reading up on how to handle this because #firsttimemom. What's seemed to work so far is giving her choices and having her help me with things, especially handing me diapers and wipes during changes and letting her make yes/no decisions or choose from two options. Bedtime has been absolute HELL (like, kicking, screaming, crying, "don't touch me" but I'm exhausted and we cosleep) but once she's asleep she's pretty much been out. She's also bitten me a few times today, not out of spite, just while I'm carrying her and her teeth are really bothering her. Here's to hoping those teeth cut SOON and this developmental leap passes ASAP!
.
On a happier note, she took an almost 3 hour nap today mid-day and while I was holding her I just started crying because she's totally not a baby anymore and I'm just so amazed that she's legit becoming an individual now with real emotions and preferences and it's actually pretty magical if I step back and marvel at the process!
