Cole has been experiencing a serious desire for independence lately. While this is a positive thing, it can also make for more messes (and headaches) for mom and dad.
Here's an example involving a container of yogurt. And please don't expect a one year old to actually need help getting the yogurt from his spoon to his mouth. Below is the evolution of a tantrum! :-)
2. Daddy trying to help Cole with the yogurt
3. Cole clearly in distress
4. Still upset!
5. Was it really worth all that?
Just so you know, I often times DO let Cole have his own yogurt at the table, but it is a huge mess and this particular day we required he let us help him and this is the result.
I will leave you with a happy picture of our spunky child doing a dance with Elmo. Lalalala, lalalala, Elmo's World. Consider yourself lucky if you don't know this song! :-)
