Alex is 15 months old, as of yesterday. He is growing so fast and seems to be either learning or unlearning something new everyday. Right now, he loves to throw things. But he doesn't know the difference between throwing balls (which are okay) and throwing the remotes and books (which are not okay). From what I have read, you can't teach them to throw one thing vs another at this age so we all have to wear protective gear until he outgrows this or turns 10.
We also have daily temper tantrums. The slightest thing can make him frustrated and cause him to pound his fists into the floor or whatever has offended him. I'm also told that this is normal and that he will outgrown this too. I'm beginning to think that Erick has joined Fight Club...and you know the rules of Fight Club!
Alex has also decided to be a vegetarian. He will take one bite of meat (mostly chicken) and then throw the rest on the floor. But he will eat all of the veggies and fruit that you put in front of him. Oh, and bread. He loves bread. He will never survive on the South Beach Diet!
Alex has always been fond of the toilet. Mostly he would just splash in it so all the bathroom doors have been shut for some time. Well, Wednesday afternoon Alex picked up my cell after I got off the phone with Hubby and held it up to his ear like he was talking. I ran and grabbed the camera and of course he stopped doing it. I went into the bathroom to knock some mud off from my shoes and he came in behind me and plop! In went my cell phone. I grabbed it out of the bowl, turned it off and dried it off. We left it to dry off for two days and now it works great! I am amazed! And so glad that I didn't get an iPhone afterall. That would have been $600 down the toilet...no pun intended!
