Brooks has developed a very endearing habit (insert sarcasm – shouldn’t there by a universal sarcasm emoticon? ) of waking up, standing up in his bed, and screaming at various points throughout the night. We think part of the reason is that he loves to stand up and hasn’t quite come to understand that it is ok to lay down and go to sleep. Another part of the reason could be that he was diagnosed with a double ear infection.
After he went to the doctor Kelley had a meeting and I came home and stayed with him for a couple hours. Somewhere during that time he came to be fascinated by my foot and very stylish grey sock. He laughed and laughed at it, especially when it came alive and started tickling him.
I’m not sure if this was good parenting or not (tickling your child with you sock you have worn all day), but I found it terribly cute to hear him laugh and laugh. I apologize if feet gross you out. The feet, not to mention the stylish grey socks, are worth enduring to hear this precious sound! Enjoy!
