This is very late… what’s new?
Before I became a mom, I thought full on tantrums didn’t start until kids turned 2. I was so wrong. This month Palmer learned how to throw fits… and they are huge. She throws them for all sorts of reasons, and some just because. She straightens her body and flails around. She just lays on the ground screaming and crying real tears. Sometimes/Most of the time, she just stands in front of you screaming as loud as she can and pulls on your legs. These tantrums are my biggest headache at this point.
She’s adorable when she isn’t throwing fits. Like when she gives kisses to us and lots of big hugs. Sometimes she just likes hanging out with me and watching Mickey Mouse. She also will just cozy up with her stuffed animals. She loves playing games with us. She’s super musical (obviously didn’t get that from me) and her favorite toy right now is a cat keyboard.

Health: Much better now! We battled our first weird cold-thing. More than a week of coughing, wheezing and just general yuckiness. We went to the doctor twice as it just wouldn’t quit as we approached Christmas Day. Thankfully, it’s over now.
Sleep: At night? Great! During the Day? Forced.
Diet: She’s SO hungry! All the time!! She’s like a never ending pit of hunger. She’ll eat and eat and eat and ask for more food. I mean, if she’s not full, I should feed her right?
Baby Gear Love: Currently loving the carseat for naps.
