Finding The Toes

By misszoot on Aug. 21, 2014 at 12:00 AM

My kids are currently finding their baby cousin's discovery of her toes to be the FUNNIEST thing in the world. Their cousins sticks her toes in her ears, in her nose, in her mouth and finds each effort exhausting and entertaining simultaneously. She struggles to grab her foot, finally pulls it towards her face, sucks her toe and then finally releases her foot. Then, she leans back and takes several deep breaths as if to say, "What a workout!" 

I remember my kid's discovering their toes so vividly because it's such a defining moment in their development. They're exploring their environment and finding that parts of their environment seem to be attached to their own body and the discoveries seem to shock them every time. I swear my daughter seemed surprised every time she reached down and found that her feet were still there. My oldest son put them directly into his mouth whereas my youngest son exhibited his skills as a Yogi by touching his feet to his head...BOTH FEET SIMULTANEOUSLY.

Or course, my enthusiasm quickly faded when I realized that right after the discovery that the toes could go into the mouth, would be the discovery that everything else can ALSO go into their mouth. Toys, fingers, keys, phones, and the inevitable: Sibling fingers. 

(There was a video that went viral years ago of a young baby named Charlie biting his brothers finger.  His brother was not amused.)

Even though it leads to the immediate MUST CHILDRPROOF EVERYTHING panic, the discovery of the toes can lead to many adorable photos and videos. Take every chance you can to document those moments because you'll want them for Throwback Thursday when they're 16 and giving you attitude. 

Has your baby discovered their toes yet?
