Piper's New Trick

Back before Piper was even 5 months old, she developed an ability to scream every time I pulled a camera out. She seemed to outgrow that problem, and became quite the flirt whenever she saw a camera. Now I think that Piper is our most photogenic baby. That being said, Piper has recently learned a new trick -- temper tantrums. It reminds me of those days way back when. Anyway, so far we are "treating" the temper tantrums by ignoring her (well, except for when I take pictures of her -- I just can't resist).

This past weekend, I managed to capture Piper having a temper tantrum on three separate occasions. The first was at Aldridge Gardens. Gary took off her dress to check for ants, and she apparently didn't want it back on. We actually had to walk off and give her a few moments to work things out. . . .




Next, she had a temper tantrum when we left Cracker Barrel. I don't think that she really wanted to stay at Cracker Barrel, but maybe she liked those pancakes more than I had thought.




Finally, she had another temper tantrum at home when I put up the markers and coloring books. She was barely using the coloring books, but apparently she wanted them pretty badly.



I guess we really are getting close to 2.

HA! You have inspired me to bust out the camera the next time Logan goes epic on the tantrum scale! HA! Too funny!

Lindsey -- do it! These are seriously my favorite pictures of the week. It's wrong of me, but I can't help it!

Mine are only 14 months, but have already started this. They are SO dramatic about not getting their way, being told no, being put down when we are holding them, a sibling taking away their toy, a sibling falling on them or touching them, etc. It's pretty funny and a little exhausting.

Hi there! Some how or other I ended up here at your adorable blog tonight. I suppose it has something to do with the fact that my friend is due any moment and she plans to name her daughter- Piper! Love that name. Anyway, what a lovely surprise when I clicked over to here and discovered all your lovely children. Congratulations they are simply gorgeous!!! I have one little guy who is 20 mos. He has the same britax car seat and is beginning to move into the same *ahem* almost two stage- we'll see now that goes ;) TJ

Hi, TJ!! Pleased to meet you. Best of luck to you during this almost 2 stage -- I'm now personally a little scared for my life, but we'll probably survive!! :)
