Tomoe’s going through a new phase now. She’s become a rebel.
One of her favourite things to do is to throw everything. She usually throws all of her toys, pillow, and blankets from her bed when she’s playing in it. She’ll throw it on purpose, just to see what we’ll do. She’ll keep doing it over and over, never stopping. If she’s playing with a toy on the floor, she’ll often try throwing it.
She often resists doing many things. Lately, getting her diaper changed has been difficult. She complains loudly when she can’t roll over while I’m doing up her diaper. She’ll start crying most of the time.
Most of the time, she’s actually happy. She smiles a lot and loves to laugh. Actually, when I came home last night, she was still awake and as soon as she saw me, she reached toward me from her bed. She was obviously happy to see me.
Another situation is her bath time. When she’s waiting to go into the bath, she resists. Recently, she’s begun crying when it’s time for a bath. She doesn’t like the water being sprayed on her. Getting into the bathtub, she used to really enjoy it, but she has been a bit fussy lately.
This is the age when most babies have separation anxiety, as well. She’s shown signs of it. Hopefully, this will be a short phase.
