Asserting himself

The last few weeks he has started to develop a temper. It’s quite ferocious, but fleeting.
Example… He’ll tip some milk onto the table from his cup. After a ‘no’, he’ll do it again. When we then take the cup from him, he clenches his fist and stare at the table, pouting.
He’s also developing impatience. Once he knows we’re going out, he’ll pick up his coat, or stand by the door, and either bang or cry while we do the necessary preparation like, say, getting buggy up or coats on.
I love it that he’s starting to shape his own world with his own desires, but it is hard – things become more of an effort. It’s especially hard not to giggle, because his sulky pout looks dead cute.
