Luke has always been at his crankiest in the evening. Recently, however, he has taken to being EXTREMELY cranky in the evenings, and has added to that finding solace only with his mother, rejecting his father's affections and ministrations outright. With force. At some point, we can only laugh at him...this was captured after a dad-to-mom transfer following a 20 minute tantrum where his father tried everything in his bag of tricks to calm him down to no avail. Once Mom took him, he decided that maybe, just maybe, he could make it to bedtime.
We eagerly await the end of this phase.
