I'm working on learning to cope with the "whining stage" of having a 1 year old. Joey is so frustrated that he can't talk or walk or do other big boy things so he just whines. A lot. He still smiles a whole lot too, so that's good. But the whining...

The place where he whines the most is in the car. He used to just sleep in the car but now he gets mad that he can't get out, he can't fall asleep, he throws stuff and then can't get it, there is nothing to do, so he just whines. Then the whining turns into fake crying, that turns into real crying, and that turns into screaming. He cried for an hour on the way home from Logan airport yesterday. I had to stop finally and let him out because he was screaming so loundly. We walked around the rest stop for about 15 minutes and then he was better the rest of the way. Tempermental, but better.

I just keep telling myself that this is normal, he's ok, and we'll get past it...

Here's a cute pic of Joey NOT whining:
