Snuffleupagus*

February 13, 2008 Jordana

I think I have forgotten to mention one of Liam’s most distinguishing features. He snuffs. In other words, as he pads throughout the house/wakes up in his little bed/eats/etc., he breathes out of his nose with varying degrees of intensity. Indeed, he has a most expressive snuff. It speeds up when he’s excited. When he wakes up in the night, his Due Warning before (long before) any crying begins is a few snuffs. Interestingly, he doesn’t snuff or even snore very much when he’s asleep.

This happened a little while ago:

What I missed was the moment when he realized that he was slipping. He got this deer-in-the-headlights expression. Also, the whole slide happened in slow motion, probably due to the fact that he was putting every effort into going UP rather than down.

Reason Number 2693 why I am a bad mother: My child falls over before my very eyes, and I stand there photographing it.

* Incidentally, was anyone aware that the Snuffleupagus’ first name is Aloysius? I know I wasn’t, until I Googled him to check my spelling a few minutes ago.

    You’re not a bad mother! People who say that forget that babies bounce. They bounce quite well in fact. I know this.

    Oh, I get a kick out of taking pictures when the childrenlets are crying…Great for the scrapbook/web page/etc!

    Good Mommy Jordana!

    I absolutely love that the Snuffelupagus’ first name is Aloysius! I would repeat it if I could pronounce it! 🙂

    I thought that you caught, in the second picture, his “are you REALLY not going to help me Mommy” expression nicely.
