19/52

He is all hair and frustration.

We have had a hard couple of weeks, he and I. 

His frustration at not being able to do what he wants is bubbling over when he wakes from naps. Cue seismic meltdowns and sabotaged afternoons. 

I am trying to do even more to encourage and reaffirm his blossoming independence. But really, when you're not quite two, you don't have terribly much of it.

And that is making life hard right now for this headstrong fellow.

(I have no idea where he gets it from.)

It's a hard phase dealing with the tantrums without squashing their spirit!
He is lovely though.

Love the expression on his face. Oh and I know only all too well what you are talking about! Jarvis is only 17 months and some days acts like he is 17.
