Attitude

Oh Miss Abbey. I have to have some humor about the recent attitude she's been throwing my way. We've had meltdowns over shoes and diapers and she insisted on wearing a beanie and mittens there for a while. You can tell from the pictures that the attitude level at these times was pretty high.

Then we had a lovely outing yesterday. I could sense a tantrum coming on so I took her on a walk--usually calms her down right away. Wrong choice. I was a half mile away from my home with a screaming toddler refusing to sit in her stroller and refusing to put on shoes so she could walk like she wanted to. That left an 8-month pregnant lady wrestling a wiggling, screaming kid as I pushed the stroller and whined on the phone to Justin. I'm sure it was a pretty sight.

My favorite part was when she realized her sandwich was dried out and threw it off the side of the stroller. Then she climbed out and started screaming 'Yucky! Yucky!' in its face. She picked it up, threw it in the basket and continued to tower over it screaming, 'Yucky! Yucky!' I was actually pretty amused at this display.

I feel the girl, I hate dry bread.
My favorite pose of Abbey with a hat on, is when she doesn't quite get it over her ears and pushes them down a bit. A little elf like. I love it!

I can't believe your 8 months! It seems like yesterday you were just starting to feel sick... time flies when your wrestling with a one year old!

Aren't the almost 2's your most favoritist age? Attitude always seems to hit the hardest before the next baby arrives. Lovely. She is adorable, gotta give her credit for that one.

Oh Ash, I can SO relate! It's nice to hear I'm not the only one who has a toddler with attitude.

I'm just impressed you're not just lying in bed and letting Abbey tantrum it out. I had a dream I was 8 months prego the other night, and I woke up tired.

Wow--her face does scream "attitude." I love your blog!

Love the attitude pictures. Maybe the attitude now means she'll be a super sweet teenager. Wrestling with at toddler at 8 months is not cool. Nothing at 8 months pregnant is cool. Hang in there!

Eirik is getting very picky about his clothes too. Usually it is moon boots and no diaper. And the tantrums about putting on diapers are getting hysterical. Oh I miss my little Abbie girl. She is such a charming little pout.
