We’ve entered a new baby stage with Rainbow: The Baby Tyrant.

He is, of course, adorable, and he is a gentle, fun-loving tyrant. As long as he gets his way. We’ve only just dipped our toes in this stage, to be honest, but the groundwork is being well-laid…

Direct from his Royal Majesty:

Decree Number One ~ I get to take a bath whenever I want to, perhaps twice a day (or more!) and I will graciously make you aware of this by lungeing toward the baby bathtub in the kitchen OR by staring longingly at the kitchen sink.

Decree Number Two ~ I get to be placed in the outdoor baby swing and gently swung under the trees whenever I want to be. I will make you aware of this desire by fussing when you carry me past the door to the deck instead of walking through it with me.

*** addendum to decree number two ~ OCCASIONALLY and AT MY DISCRETION I will allow you to put my exersaucer device out on the deck, so that I can hang out and look at the trees, instead of swinging me.

Failure to abide by these decrees will result in a mind-bogglingly sweet lower-lip-thrust and deep-voiced grumping, frequently followed by actual crying.

(All foolishness aside, I am SUCH a proud mama. Our little man is doing a great job expressing his sweet little baby desires, and we are happy to comply whenever we possibly can. We are loyal subjects of little King Rainbow.)

    This made me smile! It reminds me of my little one as well. They can be quite demanding and yet we love to comply. I know you don’t tire of hearing how cute he is…so, so cute!
