Max is a thoughtful kid.
When you ask him a question ("Where's the blue circle?") he will concentrate long and hard, staring at all of the colorful shapes in front of him before finally making his choice.
And when you read to him, he looks at the pages, as if he's following along (which we know he isn't, but it's rather funny to watch him).
Max studies his surroundings and watches everything that we do.
He has this little barn with sounds and songs and things to touch and play with. One of the things is a light switch that turns the barn light on and off (with a sing-song voice that narrates "Light ON!" and "Light OFF!").
So we knew it was only a matter of time, before he discovered that if he stood at the end of his crib, he could do this:
I found him like this when I went to get him up from his nap on Sunday, a look of pure mischief on his face, while he giggled hysterically at his ability to turn the light on and off, on and off, on and off.
It's very possible he's sending SOS codes to the house in front of us. I imagine he's communicating things like: "Send a baba!" and "I pooped!"
And that little munchkin didn't forget, since this morning I was watching as his monitor screen would light up and then go dark, with his little body standing at the edge of the crib, big grin on his face.
Looks like we have a new game!
