SCREAMING!!! (developmental milestone warning signs)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've noticed that DS starts this crazy wild banshee screaming every time he is about to hit a developmental milestone - walking, vocab explosion, etc.  He doesn't scream the rest of the time, at all - but during these times, holy cow!!! bigeyes.gif  I'm constantly surprised people are still anywhere near us, and that the glass hasn't shattered.

 

So we are in a scream-y period, and I'm waiting to see what comes next!  Does anyone else's toddler do this?  What signs tip you off that something big and new is on the way?

Mine becomes very whiny/clingy and loses her patience at the drop of a hat. At times like this she will have a meltdown because the cat is standing on the paper she threw on the ground or because I have to use the toilet eyesroll.gif. The time just before walking was the worst but definitely the talking milestones are triggering it too. I wish I did more baby wearying when she was smaller so she'd tolerate a carrier/wrap/sling and it would be easier on my back and arms.

Mine is doing this right now. She's really talking and becoming a kid right before my eyes. I don't like it!

Just here to commiserate!
