We have tantrums now, too! I am not sure if I'm supposed to give in or not... I always do but maybe that's the wrong thing lol. I actually was thinking about posting about that! She will start screaming if she wants something and won't often put up with a substitute now. And if she's getting tired not only is it screaming but it's screaming bloody murder and arching and throwing herself on the floor.
My DD (June 14) is cruising her butt off, crawling like a speedy little beetle, waving bye bye and sometimes hello, signs milk (to everybody), babbles non-stop (though we aren't sure that she is using any particular words/sounds for anything except possibly calling one of the dogs by his name- minus the "s" sound which she doesn't make yet). She has possibly started walking but I don't know when we count steps as walking! She is so sturdy with standing and using two hands to do something else but with walking but she'll usually grab something nearby after 2 or 3 steps even though she doesn't really need to. She likes to tease us with objects (like the dogs tease her and each other) and she has started wiping everything off with a sock or washcloth lol. She will also take a cracker and touch everything with it. She carries toys around in her mouth like a puppy sometimes. Weirdo! She LOVES the dogs though! She also loves other children
She isn't much into solids we usually just offer off our plates but she'll eat when she feels like it, otherwise she chews and spits it out lately. I give her some cereals and crackers or breads (even though I wasn't really planning on doing grains till after 1year) because they keep her busy while I do other things. Most end up on the floor and in the dogs lol. She does enjoy putting everything in her mouth (food and non-food) and has just cut one of her top teeth (after having nothing but bottoms for about 5 months now!).
She naps usually once in the AM for anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours, and once in the late afternoon for about the same but wakes up grumpy from that one and usually grumps till bedtime (7-8). She sleeps with me and night nurses anywhere from once to 12 times lol. She will usually nurse down and sleep on her own with me running in sometimes to feed before I go to bed. She's up most mornings around 8. I usually don't wake up much while she night nurses so I don't mind- though I prefer when I'm getting at least one 4+ hour stretch lol.
I just wanted to add- DD LOVES dancing SO MUCH! She will bop her head around if she wants us to turn on some music (or switch on one of her noisy toys) for her to dance along with!
