I Forgot About This Phase

Emily, my sweet Emily.  She gives lots of kisses and gives the best 18 month old hugs.  She is fearless and wants nothing more than to be joined at the hip with her older sister at all times.  Emily has a great sense of humor, is very happy and an awesome sleeper.  She is easy going and recovers quickly from the bumps and bruises a toddler incurs.  She knows what she wants when she wants it and is freakishly strong for her age.

(imagine a cute picture of Emily here, with a scrunched up smile on her face, I'm having trouble loading pictures at this time)

Emily is now throwing tantrums, OH NO!  She does this when we take something she shouldn't be playing with or when we tell her to stop slamming the TV cabinet doors repeatedly.  You get the picture. 

When Abby was the same age, she went though a similar phase and it was brutal.  She was very emotional and would throw herself against a wall, the floor, where ever.  To the point where she would hurt herself and get even more upset.  30-40 minutes later we would have her calmed down until the next outburst.

Emily's tantrums are a little less severe and much shorter in duration.  But, can't we just bypass this phase?
