There is no formula or date on how and when these little bunnies become little monkeys.
I had a surprise in store this weekend, a shock that this little man can think ahead and can infer the implications.
Our lil Bun has always been fond of greens, not to eat but to hold, break and play with. When he was a little baby, he will be fascinated with plants and leaves and will try to catch it every time we pass by with him in hand.
Now he runs in his walker and crawls on his legs/ feet, he got more freedom to explore so what else can he ask for!
Yesterday i was in the kitchen and as i needed to do something, i put him in his walker for those few minutes. Then suddenly i notice there is no running around, crashing in furniture sound. Everything went quiet (like in those suspense movies before a big wooooosh).
I called his name and no response.
I walk out of kitchen looking for him and what do i see, he is hiding in a passage. As I walk further near to him I see he is actually eating a leave from the plant standing there quietly.
Me: Hey what are you doing here???
He looks up at me, a naughty smile appears on his face and next moment he starts running... not towards me but in the opposite direction so that mummy can't catch him!
I was amazed, surprised, puzzled all at the same time!
How did he know that he can hide and do things we say not to do?
When i approached he inferred that he needs to run away if he wanted to keep eating that leaf in his hand!
And he didn't forget to pass me on that heart-melting sweet naughty smile, after which mummy can only smile and can't be angry on lil Bun!
My lil Bun is growing and growing naughtier!
Lil Bun is now 8 and 1/2 months old.
