Our little angel is not yet 14 months but the tantrums have most definitely started. That is not to say that they are constant or (as yet) severe or long-lasting but Evelina has definitely developed an opinion and if she things don’t go the way she has planned, then there will be repercussions. I am struggling at the moment to hide my smiles since often the tantrum (which is 85% of the time TV-remote-related – man, she loves that remote) is equal parts naughty and adorable. My particular favourite is when she exclaims in protest before throwing herself on her side on the sofa. She is very vocal in her assertions.
Her other obsession is the computer – big surprise there, considering her parents! Unfortunately, she does not have the patience or the dexterity to look after the delicate Mac mouse. We have managed to find (thanks to @kntajus) a baby-safe PC computer game which allows her to bash away at the keyboard without renaming our iTunes (oh, yes, she has managed to do that). The Mac version called Alpha Baby is available in the App Store for a very reasonable 69p.
I can already see myself describing Evelina as having ‘lots of personality’ and being ‘spirited’ – I knew all that sleep was leading somewhere..!
