Last night as we were waiting in the doctor’s office, little Hayden started making the most unusual and quite frankly, funniest faces, we have ever seen! It was truly special and exciting, and of course funny, to see him literally discover his facial muscles and their ability to move to his will. Up until now he hasn’t done much with facial expressions other than the typical instinctual things like cry, pout and of course smile. But to see him start to fool around with tongue manipulation, cheek control and eye movement was really fun. And he of course started to feed off of our reaction to him, which was pure hysterical laughter. He kept us all entertained while we waited for a good 15 minutes.

We Meet Eyes
At first we were just staring at each other, or rather he was staring at me, as I was making silly talk with him. Then all of a sudden…
And So It Begins
He locks eyes with the toy hooked to his carseat handle and seems to start making faces at it! He started with this lip pucker thing.
And Then The Tongue
And then he began sticking his tongue out at the toy. At first just ever so slightly, and then…
It Reachers Further!!!
His cute little tongue starts sticking further and further out! It was like he was trying to see just how far he could stretch it out!
And Then It Retracts
Once he reached it as far as it would stretch, the tongue retracts and he started the silly face making all over again. He stayed staring at his little toy the entire time, so it really did seem like he was making faces, or better yet, playing a little game with his toy. It was the funniest and sweetest thing he has done yet. I just love seeing their personalities develop each and every day!
