My Son, The Entertainer!

We had a magic moment yesterday.

He was sat in his highchair, playing with a muslin after enjoying a leisurely lunch (i.e. throwing food all over the cafe at Dyrham Park near Bath).

All of a sudden he held the muslin at both ends and covered his face for a few seconds and then pulled it down in an unexpected game of peek-a-boo!

We cheered in delight, as he began doing it again and again. I don't think it was a fluke either, he was very purposefully covering his face for 1, 2, 3 seconds and then revealing it. Our cheers got louder. Here was our 7 month old baby, deliberately entertaining us and making us laugh!

It was really nice. Secretly I hoped these are signs of him being a child genius. I pictured him collecting his Nobel Peace Prize as I watch him, nudging the stranger in the seat next to me, tearfully whispering: "that's my boy!"

But we will see. Next time he plays the peek-a-boo game I will try to get a video.

Here's one from today (he wasn't quite getting it right like yesterday, but you can still see the intent in his eyes!)
