Smart Baby Knows How To Get Mom's Attention
When you are a baby, there is only so much you can do to get what you want. You can either cry, as most of them do, kick and scream and point in the direction of the object of your desire. Or, you can get get creative, learn what makes your opponent tick and use it to your advantage.
Take for example this little guy. Baby Drew is only six months old, but he already knows how to divert mommy’s attention towards him so that he may take a bite from the food. See, mommy is watching TV while feeding him and keeps forgetting that Drew’s mouth is empty and needs a refill.
So he stars with the nagging and whining first; the audible cues usually do the trick, right? But doesn’t make mommy move a muscle, she won’t even bat an eyelash in Drew’s direction. So he turns to cunning measures and uses the most adorable means of deceit - he bends sideways to meet mommy’s eye and smiles! Who can stay immune to that smile?
Mom certainly couldn’t, because she notices baby Drew, waiting to be fed and bursts laughing, Dad alongside her. In case you thought it was a one time thing, they repeat the “experiment" and he does the exact same thing - starts clapping and moaning, before bending sideways again. Smart moves, kid!
