It is amazing to see that as Xavier grows up all he wants is attention from Nick and I. He will take it anyway he can get it. I make a point to endlessly give good attention and support. Usually punishments are when I quickly withhold attention for Xavier for a minute or so until something breaks the silence or we move on.
Yesterday, I was not feeling very well. Xavier was a really good boy all day. Right before bedtime he was watching Dora and started to get cranky. Due to the fact that I hurt my back from a seizure I had the night before ( Read, I Am A Face of Epilepsy), I was waiting for Nick to finish work to give Xavier a bath and put him to bed for me. Xavier being cranky and apparently not happy with Dora at the moment, started throwing books just on the floor. When I said "Xavier NO! We do not throw books" he pouted, and laid down next to his pull out couch on the floor.

He is already sulking like a teenager I thought to myself and I had to take a picture. I mean really my child's first little tiff of attitude! However, as soon as he noticed I was taking pictures of him he was all too excited to pose.
|Are you taking my picture?|
As you can see from the pictures he gets onto his sofa and even watches television like he is supposed to. When I finished the pictures he wanted me to take them some more but I said no more and he seemed to cool down and "chilled" the rest of the evening.
I suppose I now have a teenage almost two year old! What am I in for next week?
