Everyone wants to talk about the TERRIBLE 2's!!
No one warns you about the terrible 18 months! I guess it doesn't have the same ring to it as the other one :P lol
I know it's only going to get worse, but GOOD LORD.
Zoe is just... WOW.
When people say they're going to get in to everything... THEY ARE NOT JOKING.
Zoe is kinda sorta starting to learn the certain things she's not supposed to play with. Doesn't mean she still doesn't go for it though.
She knows what NO means... it's her new favorite word. But she goes deaf when we say it to her, or she takes it as a joke.
Like... "No? Oh haha momma (or as she still calls me.. Dada), you're so funny!"
But if we try to do something to her, like change her diaper or put lotion on her... it's NO NO NO NO NOOOOO and I mean the most pitiful cries of NO's that break your heart, but also makes you laugh b/c it's adorable :P lol
Thankfully she hasn't had another total meltdown in a store, but it's coming. We almost had that happen today. It was taking longer than expected in the store, and she hadn't had a 2nd nap, plus she was hungry and thirsty. The needle was on orange about to go on red before we got out of there finally.
And then, when we did leave, I took away this free pamphlet thing I had given her to keep her happy and she had her meltdown in the parking lot and ALL the way home (thankfully not that far away). Oh, and she was eating said pamphlet too b/c I guess she's teething again. She had managed to completely soak the jacket she had on b/c she was chewing on it. BLEH.
And don't get me started on all of the whining and throwing stuff at home. Thankfully it's small things she throws and it's usually thrown in to our laps, but still..... I can see it getting worse if we can't get her to stop.
Oh, she looks like this sweet adorable smiley baby, but underneath... underneath lies something chaotic that wants to be released to wreak havoc on the world!
