In the last month or so he has become more assertive, when Thomas is offended he now makes the offender aware, very aware, that he has been offended. He will walk across the room, raise his hand and hit the offender. We are working to curb this behavior.
When Thomas wants your seat, you need to be prepared to protect yourself. He squeezes his way in and works whomever it is out. If you fight back, Thomas is ready and willing to bite to remove you from your perch. We are working to curb this behavior.
Thomas has thrown caution to the wind. He will attempt to climb anything with a hand and toe hold. If he can find two points of contact he will attempt to scale. If he falls and does not knock himself unconscious, he will try again. We are working to curb this behavior.
When Thomas gets to the top he likes to jump off, usually he waits for an adult to walk by, but not always. If you see Thomas standing on something elevated be prepared to catch him. He will not necessarily warn you he is coming, sometimes he just jumps. We are currently working to curb this behavior.
I think that most of Thomas's physicallity comes from spending so much time at the bottom of the pig pile. Merry and David have learned a lot of tricks. Thomas, as always, is working hard to catch up.
