Riley the toddler.

Before her tantrum

I remember when I first had Riley people constantly told me that every few weeks she would be a different baby. Her sleeping patterns would change. Her eating habits would be different. Her personality would start to be more obvious. I thought the big changes would only happen within the first year. But no, the big changes are still the fact that Riley has started to throw tantrums. Riley the baby never got that upset, never really cried over things. Riley the toddler, on the other hand, gets very upset. One minute she's happy and the next, angry. You tell her no, she can't play with the tv. She throws herself down and acts like the world has just ended. You take something away and she'll start screaming and rolling around on the floor. If you eat without sharing with her, she'll freak out, and force tears so you feel bad for her.

I hear this is normal though... At least all the mommies I know have told me so. Maybe they're trying to make me feel better, and I just have an awful child? ;) I kid. Thankfully she's so cute and funny. It makes dealing with the tantrums a lot easier. And I love the hugs and kisses I get after she's done. I like to think of them as apologies haha! She's a stubborn little girl but mommy is a lot more stubborn and will win most of these battles.

Yes its all in the age, just wait til she starts telling you NO. Not fun! But yes, it does make it easier when they are cute. :)

I agree the change from baby to toddler are so drastic for us Mom's. We are just now figuring out how to manage the Wee One's tantrums and crazy outbursts. We will make it through this! At least there are still bright spots with kisses and smiles, right. =)

Ugh. Carson has become King of the fit throwers. It drives me nuts! He's SO loud. But Riley is cute even while throwing a fit!
