Ahhh, the side eye. This is the first time I caught it on camara. And it is the very first time he stood on his own. He was 11 months old and learning to walk. We know now that he was messing with his balance purposefully. Gathering extra input on how his body moved through space. Scaring all of his people and making them gasp as he inevitably started to run, one arm extended out or behind and the side eye in full effect. Surely he was going to face plant, and sometimes he did. But not often. He had designed a coping skill to master movement. Movement that the rest of us just feel comfortable with. But he didn't. So he figured it out. And here we thought he was just being silly. It's genius, really. This kid has ninja balance.
