my manipulative sweetie

These days, Mac LOVES it when I play ride a little pony with him on my leg.

The problem is, when I start, I'm not allowed to stop! As soon as my poor leg wants a break, his little poochy lip comes out and his eyes fill with real crocodile tears. This isn't his whiny/fussy attitude, this is his heart-is-breaking sobbing.

And as soon as I start again, he smiles through his little red puffy eyes. It's terribly cute. But I can only physically fall for it so many times. :)

Sometimes, he doesn't get what he wants by crying. Sometimes, he gets it by being all smiley and chatty when it's time for me to put him down and do chores - I can't resist him then!

Just a little story from today:
I was awakened at 5:30 to the sound of him filling his diaper over the monitor. When he was done, he just lay in bed and chatted to himself in the dark. I woke myself up to go change him. I was just so glad that I heard it so all I had to change was his diaper. In another hour, I would have been changing his clothes, crib, giving him a bath, etc. Well then I didn't want to take him with me because it was too early for him to be up but he was wide awake. I just put him back in the crib with his water sounds and he stayed happily awake in his crib listening to the water and cooing while I went back to bed for another half hour or so. What a good boy!
