I can't believe I'm saying this...

But I'm afraid our sweet little princess has a temper!  I'm talking fits on the floor, constant whining, wanting anything and EVERYTHING that we have, dare devil acts and dragging every toy and stuffed animal known to man all throughout the house.  I tweeted this pic earlier because I just had to sit there and laugh.  I guess this is just my new normal!

   Dr. Amy warned me that this stage was coming, but my child?  My sweet, easy going even-tempered angel?

And yes, the paci has re-appeared during the day more than usual, but I'm desperate!  We'll cross that bridge when we get to  it.

She wants whatever she wants, when she wants it, including sitting in her baby stroller that is not meant for a 26 pound toddler (which by the way snapped in half and ended up needed emergency electric tape).  DeDe calls it strong willed, but I am beginning to call it border line bratty.  I am now afraid that the time for actual parenting and not just care giving has arrived.  Only problem...I don't quite know what to do about it!  Stay tuned for some funny tales of time outs and no-nos, I'm sure!

Please don't get me wrong, she is still a GOOD baby. This age is just the most challenging for me so far.

The original meaning for this post was for me to show off E's 1st year book that we got months ago that I keep forgetting to write about.  I am so glad this came with our newborn package.  I know it is something I will treasure for a long, long time!


That's it for now.  Hopefully this is all just a phase.  Either way, she's still SO funny and such a joy.  I kind of feel bad for talking about her that way now!  I am such a softie.  She'll definitely be a brat if I keep this up;)


  1. Emily, I just love reading your blog and keeping up with you and that sweet girl Ellie....but I hearing you say these things about Ellie, make me think of Adelyn...I think girls in general learn how to work their momma's in ways we never thought they could. I love Adelyn more than life itself; but she knows how to test me and as they learn to communicate better things change. I encourage you to cherish every moment though; because it won't be long until she moves to the next stage...I know I don't have to tell you this :) My Mom always tells me it is payback :)

  2. Hey that pic looks like my house the majority of the time. Alan always says we need to have company over every weekend, so the house will be clean.....don't think so. Too much work for me.
    One of my biggest fears in raising Ginny is that she will be bratty. I guess they all go through it.
