I am pretty sure Mal loved it...he sat in the dirt, grabbed a goat by the horns while it ate his sweater, picked out a pumpkin and put the moves on a few of his cousins. :) Way to go bud!
It is very rare for Mal to actualy cry...but that being said, he has got the fake cry down pat. GRRRRR! It is about to drive me crazy! The fake cry can come out at any old time and he will do it incesantly for an hour if you let him. To the untrained ear it may seem real, but it can be flipped on and off like a light switch and there will never be a tear- half the time he forgets to even make a fake sad face and will just sit there playing with a toy with his mouth wide open in an unconcentrated fake hollar. He will now bust out the fake cry when he is getting a diaper change, when he is waiting on his meal, when his toy rolls away and he doesn't feel like reaching for it, when his sleeve covers his finger, when his sock falls off, when he wants to stand up but only wants to do it holding each of your pointer fingers...I think you get the point. My heart is not as hard as it may sound- if he was really in need of something or if he were hurt or just needing mama, I will always come running to scoop my baby up! But, I am pretty sure that this is just a new found trick, that he wants to torture me with. :) All that being said, this kid is cracking us up these days!! He is just getting to the age where his little personality is coming out more and more each day, we are constantly entertained by him and he is such a joy to be around. So if we have to endure the crazy fake crying in order to see his other half- the part of him that has me cracking up all day long, and that keeps me kissing this cheeks about 287 times a day...well then, we will take it.What did we do before he was here?? I can't even imagine life without my precious son around, and I am SO looking forward to seeing him turn into a little boy!! He is already thinning and stretching out. When we picked him up from Ethiopia he was 26 inches long and weighed 16 lbs. Now, he is almost 30 inches and weighs 20 lbs!
