Don't be fooled. This little girl may look sweet and angelic, and she usually is, but she has recently developed a fiery temper. Emma and Noah never did the whole temper tantrum thing very much, but Allie - wow. There are a few things that can really set her off these days. For example, she hates getting in her carseat. When I'm trying to buckle her in there, she arches her back and screams and kicks. It's a little ridiculous because I have to push my head against her torso to get her body to bend so I can buckle her. Once the buckles are closed, she's over it and completely fine.Her biggest issue is wearing clothes. She fights and screams and struggles and basically completely flips out whenever I attempt to put a diaper or clothes on her. She's been running around naked a lot, but I can't leave the house with a naked baby so we have to endure the struggle of trying to get her dressed at least once a day.
On the flip side, sometimes she'll decide she wants to wear a whole bunch of clothes at once. She'll bring me random articles of clothing she finds and insist I put them on. I am happy to do it because it's certainly better than the alternative - even if it means going to the library with my little girl wearing Thomas underwear on the outside of Thomas pajama pants.
