Apollo has always been an alert and active baby…and he has always been determined that you understand him when he communicates. No faking it with this guy.
Well, the other day, Chuck sat down on the couch across from me in the living room when he got out of the shower. Apollo was sitting on my lap and kept getting right in my face and saying, “Dada! Dada! Dada!”. I said something like, “yes, Daddy’s home from work” but Apollo wasn’t satisfied. He kept saying “Dada!” and getting more and more insistent each time. Finally, he grabbed my face between his two hands, looked me in the eye and said firmly, “Dada. Hair”. Then it dawned on me…I had just given Chuck a haircut and Apollo noticed! He was a bit leary of Chuck and I had to encourage him to go over and touch Chuck’s hair to make sure everything was all right.
This is still what Apollo’s meals look like…lots of choices and a non-threatening situation.
And just for fun…anyone remember this sweet, bald baby?
