Foot Grabber

February 8, 2011

Isaac’s friend Sylvie came over the other day.  He has developed a strange obsession with grabbing her feet.  We are pretty sure he does it because she hates it and gives him a nice angry reaction each time he touches her shoe.  It’s gotten to the point where he grabs her shoe while looking at her face, waiting for the reaction. 

Here he is, about to touch her feet while looking guiltily back at me.

Watching her face, waiting for her to get mad…

Looking back at me, waiting for me to tell him to stop it.  Unfortunately for Sylvie, I was intent on getting this weird little ritual on film.

Looking back at Sylvie, waiting for her to scream.  Unfortunately for Isaac, she has become desensitized!  She doesn’t care anymore!  Now what will he do for fun??

Perhaps sit next to her on the couch and touch her hair?

She just thinks that is funny, not annoying (yet).

Practicing his shrieks.

Later on I got the idea that the babies would think it was funny to switch shoes.  But once I got Sylvie’s shoes off she did not want anything on her feet.  She insisted on taking her socks off too, and then running around on the cold floor.  Weirdo.

Meanwhile, Isaac took advantage of the opportunity to examine her shoes, up close and personal!

    Wonderful expressions on the baby faces. Isaac is such a ham for the camera. Love it.

    Peace & Love

    I guess if Sylvie isn’t going to shriek, Isaac will!

    That was a wonderful series of Isaac practicing cause and effect. I guess he’s learning that sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t!! The picture of Isaac touching a smiling Sylvie’s hair just cracks me up because I think he looks so much like Jamie!!

    Those are pretty fancy red shoes.
