It was early morning and Brian had decided to get up with me. I threw a load of laundry in and he immediately sank down in front of the washer. I watched him knock on the window and say, "doogladidglad! oh? ok!" and then knock and repeat the phrase again. He did it for a good ten minutes before I decided to go grab the camera to try to document him getting stuck into a cycle of some kind of script.
Well as soon as he saw the camera he came out of the script, that I had tried to interject into in the previous ten minutes. "Cheese?" he kept asking me as he looked at the camera.
I tried to get him back to what he was doing, merely for the fact that I wanted it on video. You can even hear me ask, "You're not going to ignore me, are you?".
How silly is that? That I wanted him to ignore me and the camera (for the camera was most likely what he really was having trouble ignoring)? I really have to celebrate the fact that he just came out of his cycle so easily like that. That he was aware of the environment around him. He's coming out of his shell and it's such an exciting feeling!
