The Awkward In Between Stage

We have reached the stage with Alice where she is very aware and no longer wants to stay still. Instead she want to sit up, play, attempt to crawl and stand up. This means she can no longer be left to occupy herself happily kicking away in her bouncy chair she wants constant attention.

If she thinks your are ignoring her or giving someone else attention - She will scream!

If she rolls on to her tummy and attempt to crawl, she will get frustrated - She will scream!

If her brothers leave the room to play somewhere else where she can't see them - She will scream!

She developing her own personality and using screaming to make sure she is heard among the chaos of the terrible two.

She has recently discovered snacks, from biscotti and rice cakes to carrot puffs. Snacks are currently working to distract her when she is being a little diva. The ultimate way to keep her happy is for the boys to pull silly faces and make her laugh but they aren't always will to participate.

Although I don't want her to grow up to quickly I think this stage is quite difficult. Maybe once she can move around a little more and be more independent she'll he happier. I think she will be very pleased to be able to follow her big brothers.
