Yesterday as I was getting ready for church I heard the all too familiar sound of cereal being dumped out. Dean dumped the entire NEW box of Cinnamon Life on the floor. We'd had it for breakfast and I put the box in the middle of the table. Well, he's getting tall enough to reach almost anything, and getting good enough at climbing to reach most of the rest. He just wanted a snack.
Another day I was taking a shower and he didn't come into the bathroom once which is unusual. I figured he was getting into trouble somewhere. We'd just eaten, so I didn't think it was food he was after. When I got out i found that he'd taken the liberty of getting himself a banana, biting into the peel, peeling what he could, and eating about half of it. Independent little guy!
He'll now say please at my prompting (he says "geeee" with a hard g), more (it started as "ma" but has changed to "mo" and yesterday he even said more with the r), and again.
In the last two days he's started throwing LOUD screaming/shrieking fits when he doesn't get what he wants. Matt started implementing time outs yesterday because of it. I have continued it for other things like biting me. It's only 1 min. at a time right now. I mean, he isn't even a year-and-a half yet.
