Who I Follow

Evelyn has reached the stage where her body can’t do everything her mind wants to. She gets very frustrated with her toys and blankets if she can’t do what she wants with them.

I resorted to my number 1 parenting tool: Google, and discovered this is common for 4 month olds.

How long does this phase last? Or is this just a perma-thing until she’s much older and can do everything she sets her mind to do?

In the bathtub it is kind of cute - these little tantrums she throws result in lots of splashes. When she splashes, she smiles, so it’s like she is pissed off but smiling. Too cute.

  4. babyfishhopes said: Ha ha ha.. I laughed out loud! Pictured her getting pissed, grunting, and flailing, then splash and she’s like “ooooo fun! But damn it I was trying to get up!” And repeat. Lol

  6. brightlywoundmama said: It keeps happening, though it changes. Frustrations about hands not doing what they want turned into frustrations about not being mobile enough to get the cat or the toy that rolled away.
