Iíve read that babies around Theoís age sometimes suddenly stop liking people who arenít mommy or daddy. Theo does not have that issue, thank goodness. Essentially, heís an attention whore. If you smile at him, heís yours. Today, he lapped up the love from Matt and Tamar. Yesterday, it was nana and grampy.
The day before, it was Caroline,
Amy, and Tahiti. Not to mention the countless strangers the boy flirts with on a daily basis.
Iím keeping my fingers crossed that his friendly nature is here to stayóand that my childhood shyness doesnít plague him. Nate and I were joking the other day about what a disaster it would be if Theo inherited my social skills and Nateís study skills. The poor kid would not have the best time in high school.
If only we could cherry pick the traits that our kidsí would inherit.
