Huck is getting to the age where suddenly he’ll notice things he can do to elicit a laugh from Mama, and then he will repeat them over and over and over. He is a total ham and loves to be the center of attention.
Lately, when Huck finds something to be particularly delightful, he tenses his entire body, sticks his arms straight out, and smiles really hard until his grin became a grimace from the effort. As he’s gotten bigger (too big! too fast!) these “body smiles,” as we call them, have gotten bigger and grander and they are hysterical. If he’s in the right mood we can make these exaggerated faces back and forth, and then we laugh and laugh and laugh together.
This kid is so rad, I mean it.
After the jump, we tried to catch it on video just for you! And, well, yeah for posterity also.
(I tried to upload the video directly into the post, but apparently it is too large (it’s only 36 seconds?) and so you’ll have to follow the link to YouTube.)
(Please note: What you can’t see is me making all kinds of ridiculous faces behind the camera. But what you can see is what a freaking stage mom I am. “You’re not focusing?” Hah, seriously??)
