for the past four or five days now cooper has been consistently calling me "beebee", for the first couple of days it was a mix between mommy and beebee but today it has just been beebee all day. i think it is his take on "baby" but i'm really not sure, all i know is that it is hilarious to me and so darn cute too. i'm guessing it won't be something that sticks around for long and honestly, i see myself missing him calling me "mommy" soon - but it's definitely a little thing worth jotting down!
he has been rather
incredibly difficult lately and i have found myself yelling at him entirely too much. four days ago i made the decision to really work on that. i don't want him covering his ears as soon as he does something he knows he's not supposed to do and i don't want him yelling back at me either. i love the idea of a calm-ish home atmosphere that is free from yelling as a form of punishment and am ready to put forth the conscious effort to not do it. the first two days were a smashing success, yesterday i ended up yelling at him three times, and today i think i did once in the truck. he has had a really hard time today but that's no excuse to get mad at him and yell. my mom has self-proclaimed herself as a "yeller" and says it runs in our family.... but not for much longer. i don't want to be a yeller!
tomorrow's friday! whoop!
