Movie: Pop!

This movie, destined to be a Talia's Favorite I am sure, was intended to come out somewhat differently than it did. We have had these suction bowls for some time, but have never been able to get them to stick effectively. For some reason I tried again yesterday and this time the seal worked. Felix couldn't get the bowl off until he figured out that pushing it against the rim of his tray broke the seal. So I thought I'd make a movie of that, a clever solution to a tricky problem. To his regret and the viewer's (and director's) delight, he decided to return to the brute force approach. I'm still laughing.

Movie: Treadmill

This one entry has two movies. The first one may be a bit of a mystery. Try to guess what our hero is up to, then watch the second one.

I know you're not supposed to let kids play on these, but it's so rare that we find something that fully entertains him and keeps him in one place at the same time.

Movie: Making tomato paste

I know I keep posting videos of Felix doing something terrible with food and I do it to keep you amused but you must understand that normally he is not allowed to behave in such a beastly fashion. In fact, our biggest struggle at the moment is teaching him to handle his food more appropriately. We are making some, though only some, progress.

If anyone can tell me what he's talking about I will be very grateful. Certainly I don't know.

Movie: Softly, softly

As the last photo set shows, Felix got a booboo bad enough to require stitches. Five, to be precise. He did not seem greatly put out by the entire experience, but he definitely knows they are there and that they must be treated gently. With the baby-standard attraction to soft things being as powerful as it is we can hardly expect he won't touch them at all: they're made of silk and so the draw is irresistible. Also, he usually fondles the ears of his sheep pillow when falling asleep, and in this scene was falling asleep upstairs where he doesn't have the pillow at hand. But the stitches are always there, or at least they were until last Tuesday when we had them removed. For some reason I miss them.
