I Get So Emotional - You Capture

I think it's pretty safe to say that toddlers may be some of the most emotional creatures on the planet.

Besides pregnant women. And thirteen year old girls.

My little man is no exception. Please join me as I explore the emotions of G in his natural habitat.

We call this emotion 'YAAAAYYYY!' It is always denoted by hand clapping and jumping up and down.


This is a variation on 'YAAAAYYYY!' It is called, 'WHEEEEE!' This emotion also involves jumping about, but also high pitched shrieks. It's usually concluded with a trip, perhaps a bonk on the head, and a crying heap of child on the floor. Balloons ALWAYS incite the WHEEEEE! emotion.

Speaking of crying, we call this one 'I've played really hard and now suddenly am in great need of a nap, though I will never admit it.'

This next emotion, it's new to us. Shy. Or maybe it's 'Ewwww. Girls!' But I think that's still a few years down the road.

And lastly, Big Boy-ness. As in, I'm a big boy and I'm going to show you the ropes. Just follow my lead.

For more emotion, grab your kleenex and visit Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry.

He is adorable and yes, toddlers are FULL of emotion! I wish I had thought to do it this way. Boy my kid has mood swings almost as bad as me when I am PMSing! Nice post and blog. If you click through to my blog from Blogger, my photo blog link is at the top of my regular blog. Not that you have to, but if you do, that's where it is. :-)
