I do tell him "No hit. Hitting hurts mommy." while he is trying to hit me.
I am trying to encourage him to be more verbal - with him, I get the feeling it isn't so much that he *can't* talk more, but that he is simply choosing NOT to talk more. On occasion, he will come out with sentences: "I-wan-dat" "You-gimme-dat" "I-lub-you" "I-wan-up", but they are SO rare and so fast that I didn't believe I was hearing right until my mom heard him say them too. Most of the time, he only uses one word: "Up" "Hi" or gestures.
I just wish he'd talk more... the temper tantrums can be quite painful for both of us!

Every time we're in the middle of one of these, I want to pull all my hair out, think it's going to last forever, "what happened to my loving angel?", then it seems to be over - till the next time!
