One milestone for young children is the entrance into the independence phase. Let me do it! I can do it! I wanna do it!
Even though Theo doen't say those things exactly, I'm so happy he has entered the phase. And relieved. Just cuz it's a natural progression.
I try to help him get dressed. "Noooo mommy mine mine!" or "No, Theo socks!"
I try to pour him a drink "no, mine. no, mine."
He's getting good at things like twisting off caps and pouring and dressing/undressing. I'm sure a lot of it comes from his Occupational Therapy. But he's also just coming of age. Sniff sniff.
