Imagine if you will dinnertime. We all sit down to eat, Soren has already been nursed AND fed his own food. I go to take my first bite and I begin to realize that consistent sound nearby is my baby, reaching over his high chair, trying desperately to get a hold on anything edible:
"Heh, heh, heh, HEH, HEH,HEH!"
It reminds me of these scenes from Nemo, each and every time, which of course, sends me into silent giggles:
If you ignore his antics it just escalates until he is at max level and squirming frantically to reach anything he can jam in his mouth. It's not just dinnertime either. This morning J was making some chocolate milk for Ashe with Soren in his arms. The moment he started pouring the chocolate powder into a cup, Soren started bouncing up and down:
"He, heh, heh, HEH, HEH, HEH, HEH!!!!!"
He does it even when you feed him baby food. If you're not fast enough from one spoonful to another, he starts it up again until his mouth is full and can not make any other sound except nom nom nom.
Feeling stir crazy today, after being stuck inside all day yesterday with Xavier and myself dealing with food poisoning, J was desperate to get out of the house. So we went out to brunch. I brought food and toys for Soren and while waiting for our food to arrive, fed him his appropriate baby food which he "Hehed" through the entire time. But even after a full belly where he couldn't finish the last few bites, the moment real food arrived he ramped right back up again. He wouldn't stop until J relented and gave him a couple of bites of grits.
It's not like he isnt being fed. The boy is a champion nurser, he sucks down baby food like it's going out of style, and he is becoming a master at trying new edibles. But any stranger who may see us out in public would wonder if we're starving the poor kid (despite his hefty appearance) the way he goes on and on around food. It's cute and makes me giggle, unless he tries to steal my coffee cup. Then all bets are off.
