This weekend, Gus became a toddler. He can now stand in his highchair during meals, stand in the tub to turn the water on, take all the pans out of the pans cupboard, all the Tupperware out of the Tupperware cupboard, folded clothes out of the laundry basket, etc. He now gives a bit of a tanty if he was chewing on something you take away, can throw, regularly bolts for the bathroom door or the dishwasher if he hears them open, and points to where he wants you to take him… now. Oh yeah, and he thinks it’s fun to reach for the stove handles too.
He’s still sweet but he suddenly has strong desires and reactions. He has a will.
God help us when the testosterone kicks in.
