Cover yer ears!


Photo by Krishen
He may be all quiet and pleasant looking here. But this little boy can find his lungs when he is upset … and it seems that post bedtime excursions makes him upset. Well, more specifically defined as …

if( isHungry()
    AND othersEating()
    AND NOT isFedorFeeding() )
then
{
    Joseph = UPSET!
}

… so it is not really limited to late night excursions. We really must remember that bottle when we go out.
He has also started being far more dramatic and using body language a lot more as a communication tool. He will smack is legs very intently when he is unhappy … raise his fists when he is really angry … and pull his hands to his mouth when he is happy. He has started mimicking sounds we make, particularly the rolling of the tongue – he loves that especially when it is making car-shifting type changes in tone, strength, and/or pitch. And he is urning to walk … he has the legs doing what they need, just missing that whole balance thing. And he can almost sit up straight … well he can just will fall over after not to long. Though he is starting to pull himself up with his stomach muscles when he falls over backwards. Now … only if he would roll over …
Oh … and he loves his buddy in the window (read mirror). Fascinating…

  1. Just wait until you get to what we call an Altitude Attitude. He wants to be held and you can’t even sit down.

  2. Oh man … you have painted dark clouds in my sky 🙂
    To be honest, Joe is already looking for mom at times. But he, at the moment, is really independent. Only wants to be held for a little bit .. then screams to be let down. Heck .. he actually “asks” to go to bed (very strange child). He is independent … likes to stand … desires to walk …
    … we will just have to see what the future holds.

  3. Minor correction to the code:
    if( isHungry()
        AND othersEating()
        AND NOT (isFed() OR isFeeding()) )
    then
    {
        Joseph = UPSET!
    }
