Erich's New Trick

Sorry everyone for being away the past few weeks. Every once and a while I have to go anti-internet and focus my energies elsewhere. Just something that keeps me sane.

Hoping you'll forgive me, here is one of the latest things my adorably awesome kid has been doing. Regularly, I might add. I seriously doubt anyone else's child does this and I couldn't be more proud.

nash does that! just kidding, the kid doesn't even have enough hair-so what exactly is he doing? tickling his foot? soothing himself?

As far as I can tell, he's just touching his hair to his toes. He's actually known for touching his hair to lots of things - toys, his sippy cup, etc. I just haven't caught it on film. Sometimes I think of his hair as whiskers or feelers. It's really a part of him and seems so much like it has it's own sixth sense. He's a superhero in the making. :)

that cracks me up. that is definitely some talent.

He's wrapping his hair around his toes. Perhaps this is obvious to me because I've actually seen him in action. Erich is a geek, he doesn't need a favorite blanket or teddy bear when he's sad or tired, he just needs a lock of hair (to wrap around his foot, that is.) I love him!

Wow, it's gone from just a hair obsession to a hair/foot obsession? He's so funny! It might not be cute as a 16 year old though. Running his foot through his dates' hair may not go over that well ...

Okay, the cat's out of the bag. He IS running his toes through his hair. I wasn't going to admit it and save him the potential embarrassment when he runs for public office someday, but I have a feeling Erich will always do what he wants no matter what people think. (Though I'll definitely try to curb this particular habit before the dating years for sure, b.)

Duh, but maybe it's obvious to me since I've had the benefit of seeing it in action:) Erich is such a geek, he doesn't need the comfort of a favorite blanket or cuddly teddy bear when he's sad or tired, all he needs is his good old lock of hair...and perhaps a foot to wrap it around. I love him.

Your kid is funny!! I love reading your blogs about Erich. Maybe you should enter him into some talent show or something. I bet many kids his age can't do that! Aaron can't!

Wow, either his hair is super long or Erich is a contortionist! That's impressive, Jace just sucks his toes, also impressive, but really more gross than anything. I can't believe how big he is!!!!!! We need to rendevous soon, sista!

I think he is COMBING HIS HAIR! Brilliant!

I think that's a definite sign of genius. I love the video!

This is hilarious Missy. Erich is so flexible. Maybe you should enroll him in some weaving classes.
I bet he could do some cool afghan blankets with those weaving toes.

And I thought that sleeping baby video was hilarious from your gmail status.
