Its hard for me to admit, but,

I'm frustrated.
Not all the time. Not even 50% of the time. But time.
MB has entered this phase where when he wants ANYTHING, no matter how major, (like food) or minor (a position change) he squeals and hollers like a howler monkey.
Doesn't matter what time it is. 5:30 am, or noon. He just goes from 0-60 in less than 2 seconds. And if it doesn't happen quickly enough?
Look out.
Boy has a temper.
He is also still cute, laughing and babbling, but the howler monkey?
I'm sure what's not helping is that both he and I have a head cold. I think thats why he has woken us up before 4 am every day this week with his howler monkey demonstration. He feels like crap and wants to be on one of our chests instead of anywhere else.
I've had my hair pulled, my eyes poked, little fingers that try to go up my nose and in my mouth. I'm covered in spit up and snot. (his, and mine, sadly).
I know, I know. I signed on for this. I'm the Mama.
I love him like crazy
but the howling has to stop....

Oooh - and get used to it, because you will be frustrated a zillion times more!!
As for the howler monkey - ignore it. If you cave into it, well - you know - he'll think "hey, that worked" and then he'll keep it up for years. I'm not even exaggerating! Just walk away if he's doing it in bed and his high chair. When he quiets down, then he can have whatever. It's definitely hard to do, but since he can't understand most words, yet - it works.
Hang in there!
He sure is a freaking cutie, though!
