Bittersweet: Milestones and Jealousy

Yamee was given solids yesterday.

Can you hear Yakee thanking us and applauding us for taking care of his younger brother?

But later on, Yakee would also be very unruly, disruptive and physically aggressive. And I believe it was because he couldn't process how he felt about all the pride and attention over his younger brother's milestone.

The day ended terribly for him.

As Yamee becomes more engaging, Yakee also tests his limits more. Just this morning, he scratched my face for the first time in a tantrum. He also started using his feet to push Yamee away when I was trying to put him down for a nap. This... despite continued QT with him.


Heaven help me be a better, more understanding and patient parent.
