Center of Attention

Amaguri and I took our little chibiguri to a Christmas party last Saturday at a friend's domicile. Though there were a number of other children present, chibiguri was the undeniable center of attention, with many people admiring him. Though he had previously not been in such a large company, he responded well to the extra attention by being for the most part on his best behavior. He even suffered himself to be help by numerous strangers, who were all overcome by his good manners. I think that it is a credit to him that he was able to acquit himself so well in such trying circumstances.

We have noticed that chibiguri has a pronounced tendency towards being a bit of ann attention hog. When he is not the center of attention, he becomes unhappy and clamors for attention from whomever might be handy. Conversely, when he is surrounded by people admiring him or playing with him or otheriwse making him the center of attention, he is quite pleased and will allow many liberties that perhaps he would not tolerate under other circumstances- such as being help and cuddled by non-family members. And he will even let other people feed him!

Chibiguri iss truly opening our eyes to a whoel world that we had hithertofore not even suspected. babies are an endless stream of entertainment, without recourse to such crutches as television, or even the music system. perhaps when he has aged and begins to move under his own poweer we may not be so delighted but for now we are just happy that we have been blessed with this New Addition.
