Choice of a New Generation

We can't get Finn to use baby sign language to tell us why he's crying. We can't get him to wave bye-bye. We can't get him to high-five, low-five, fist bump or blow it up. But we can get him to channel Michael J Fox, circa 1985.

Doesn't he make that spoonful of fish oil look delicious? That takes skills, because fish oil is most decidedly not delicious.

He's so good at the "aaah" move that he'll bust it out in the middle of dinner while he's furiously spitting something green out of his mouth. He'll go from full-on bawling to a smiling "aaah" (if we can get his sippy cup in there) then right back to bawling.

Turns out it's really hard to force the veggie issue when faced with that level of cuteness. The little jerk knows exactly what he's doing.

I wonder what the baby sign is for "manipulation".

You know, I grew up thinking (via Kris) that if you took a drink without saying "ahhh" you would die. Yes, ask Scott about this. Finn is just surviving!
