Kevin is dealing with a lot of changes lately. He's moving from two naps to one in the middle of the day. We are trying to get him to sleep a little longer in the mornings instead of waking up at 6 a.m. We are trying to encourage him to stand alone and walk.

But what seems most outrageous to our poor little man is that I am weaning him. He only gets nursed when he first wakes up and just before bedtime now. During the day he must drink a sippy cup of milk instead and eat with us at regular meal and snack times. He climbs into my lap and lays down, then gets furious at me when I won't nurse him. He also gets angry when we let go of his hand and try to make him stand alone. He immediately sits down, lays his head on the ground and wails. It's enough to break a mommy's heart!

Today Shannon brought her brown blanket over so that we could take pictures of Kevin on it. We thought it'd make a nice backdrop. He wanted nothing to do with it. He threw a fit until we picked him up. I guess with all these changes he feels the need to control one thing: he won't smile for the camera.
