Strange little man

Good news.. Liam likes his jacket. He wore it out today and figured out that the fleece is nice and soft on his cheek. He does look like a bit of a dag cruising around holding his head to his shoulder so he can feel it, but least he likes it!

After studying my boy for a few days I have come to the conclusion he is a tidier/cleaner. I don't know where he gets it from, certainly not me. Evidence:

1. He empties things. If there is anything on the coffee table he will do circles around it (our coffee table is 1.4m x 0.75m) and gradually throw everything that is on it, no matter what, on the floor until it is completely empty. No thing is safe. Great for cleaning the coffee table. Not so great for the state of the floor.
2. If he manages to get into the bathroom before we close the door, he will go through everything on the floor and if it is a bath toy, it gets unceremoniously thrown as hard as possible into the bath tub. This is kind of helpful. Except if someone happens to BE in the bath/shower. Nothing like a plastic octopus being hurled at you while your blinded by shampoo.

I will find a way to harness this cleaning ability to my advantage.

He also is apparently a drummer in the making, a future runner judging by the speeds he can now go round-and-round-and-round-and-round the coffee table, a music and TV critic (changes the station if he doesn't like what's on) and apparently a fairy according to his sister.

He is a strange little man. But we like him and think we'll keep him.
