The first proper hint of tantrums started a few days ago when Little 3 wanted picking up. I had raw chicken on my hands from cooking tea so as he crawled to me I stepped over him to get to the sink to wash them, at that point he put his head on the floor between his hands in the crawling position and got cross, had a good shout and then a little cry at the end for a note of sympathy. He has done it several times since then always head down onto the floor with a shout, it really makes me want to giggle. He only does it for a few seconds and then gives up and starts to cry, he may only be little but he is already starting to get frustrated.
We have had a few other cross moments too where he has been in the highchair and his food isn't coming fast enough or he wants to get out of the pushchair when he throws his head back and shouts or clenches his fists beside his ears and has a little growl and shake kind of move. I understand that he is frustrated but I can not help but smile, after all it is pretty cute to see my little baby boy doing this! He has been shouting 'get down' which sounds a lot like 'geh dan' when he has finished his dinner or when he wants to get out of the pushchair for a week or two now. Having learnt this phrase, it usually means that he is released before he gets cross unless of course I leave him there for a moment so that I can finish unpacking the shopping without his 'help'.
