And so, I’ve been away from my blog for a while.
Emotionally and physically, it has been a tough and somewhat draining year. I haven’t really felt inspired to write over the last few weeks.
Interesting “new” behaviour
But recently, the little man has started displaying “new” behaviour, which I feel has to be documented. 😛
Signs of empathy
Upon being abused by the little bugger, I simulated some very fake and rather horrible crying. Where before he would have found this hilarious, now he didn’t know what to do and seemed rather uncomfortable.
He gave me a worried look, and asked me “what’s wong?” Then he looked away shyly and gave me a quick hug.
The next time I did this, he asked me “why mamma sad?” and I got another shy hug.
However, this quickly became a game when he discovered what mamma was doing. 😛
The game goes something like this – you get whacked by a small hand and if you fake crying, you get some hugs.
I’ve also taught the little bug to give kisses. He comes to you tight-lipped and then gives you a smack on the mouth.
He’s not adverse to kissing, but you can forget about getting more than your daily allocation. 😛
A proper little person
So while he was still a baby a few short months ago, he is now becoming a proper little person who cares about others’ feelings and sometimes not.
I’m looking forward to see how he will develop in future months. 🙂
