The One with Fox: On Toys, Solids, and Funny Faces

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Fox has a Bumbo. He has a bouncer. He has a swing. He has an activity mat. He has an exersaucer. He has regular toys. All of his toys are taking over our apartment!!
Question: Which of these toys keeps him entertained for more than five minutes at a time?
Answer: None of the above.
Oy vey.
He prefers to be held every waking moment and we must be standing up while doing so. Chris says it's just a phase but this phase is goin' on four weeks now. Silly little boy.

We started Fox on rice cereal last week and we tried his very first jar of baby food today.
Question: How did Fox like his very first sampling of mashed carrots?
Answer: You'll have to ask his clothes, cuz that's where most of it ended up.
But in all seriousness, he did take quite a few bites and is getting the hang of opening and swallowing. It's so fascinating to watch a baby grow up. All of the things that we do on a day-to-day basis without even thinking babies have to learn from scratch. From holding their head up to learning how to eat and hold onto things, they have to learn how to do it all.

Question: What happens when you blow on Fox's face?
Answer: Watch and see:

Ever since he was a few weeks old he's been doing this "trick." When we blow on him he scrunches up his face and wiggles around. I particularly love this video because he's looking right at the camera, but every few seconds he glances over at me. And the millisecond laugh at 9 seconds in? To die for!

I just can't get enough of this boy. So glad he's mine all mine!
