Who are you...

...and what have you done with my little boy?!

Recently, Fritter has begun throwing tantrums. I thought he was a little young for that, but he thought otherwise. Not throw-yourself-on-the-floor-and-bang-your-head type tantrums, but tantrums nonetheless. *sigh*

Also, we used to put him in his playpen for one minute if he touched (read bang on) the TV and stereo and while he didn't enjoy it, he was ok with it, and it worked for the most part. Of course, he still touched the TV now and then, but when I would say, "No Fritter, do not touch the ___" he would usually stop.

But NOW, since we have taken the playpen down we put him in his crib (with the light on and door open) for one minute just like before. Any oh-boy does he scream. His little face gets red, his fists ball up, and he screams. Interestingly enough, when we put him in his crib to go to sleep, he lays right down, snuggles with his duck and sleeps, so no issues there. *double sigh*

PS - He is still a generally happy little boy, as before, just a little louder when he gets angry.
