I think this outfit makes Asa look like a miniature Smee. And he’s the cutest Pirate Baby you ever did see, right? Haha! Oh, I love this boy. Really, it’s not quite hot enough for him to wear this outfit yet, but I’m starting to look forward to fall and everything it contains, and I’m hoping he’ll still fit this when it gets cooler out! As you can see, he has learned to blow raspberries, and does it all. day. long. It’s like his new favorite thing to do. That, and talk. And talk. And talk. He’s sort of learning how to do his “da” sounds now, but mostly it’s “ba” and just plain ol’ voices.
Of course, once I got him, he started to whine. And, like good parents, we laughed at him for it. (Joking. Sort of.)
He’s to the point now where I have to discipline him mildly for certain things. Mostly, he screams at me when he’s mad, and I have to lightly flick his lip. It’s a very entle flick, and when I did it to myself it didn’t even hurt, but it shocks him and he totally knows he’s being chastised, and he gives me the saddest look you have ever seen, and just bawls his little eyes out… for like three seconds. And then he’s done, and happy again.
It’s sad to have to discipline him, in the way that no mama likes to make her baby cry, but I do no want to allow my kid to yell at me, and I know he knows what he’s doing now.
When did you guys start discipline with your kids? I’ve always been curious as to how early people start with whatever type of discipline it is they use.
Anyway! I hope you are all having a good Saturday! Mine has been rocky due to a combination of eating many non-paleo foods over the course of the week (so much junk, ugh) and lack of sleep (we went to the drive-in movies last night and saw Guardians of the Galaxy) and trying to sew but doing the wrong thing (sewing with a pattern is the worst!). But it’s getting better.
