Lately my 9 month old has been protesting whenever I try to put him in his high chair or carseat: he arches his back and won't bend his legs to sit, and when I do make him sit he screams at me and when I tell him "No, we don't scream like that!" he screams at me again, but quieter. I try so hard not to laugh because I don't want him to think it's a game, but it's hilarious! I think he's just mad because I'm taking him away from something fun to put him somewhere where he can't really move. Is he starting to test me to see where the boundaries are? He also screams at me when I take him away from something that's not exactly safe, like Daddy's Xbox cables or the birdcage.
