The many faces of Drew
It's amazing to me how quickly this little guy can go from a super sweet and loving face to a full on screaming, tantrum throwing, mad face in about 1.2 seconds. Sometimes all it takes to set him off is a simple "Are you ready to eat lunch?" For a complete visual of this refer to picture #2 on the above layout.
First the fists clench up at his side and he slowly raises them to shoulder level. The mouth forms into a tight little pucker and what starts out as a quiet growl soon grows into a very loud "ahhhhhhhhh!" If you're lucky he even throws in "the look" where the eyes squint up into a piercing stare. That last one has been passed on and perfected over the generations on my side of the family.
The other day Drew, Jackson and I were playing in Drew's room when I took full advantage of Drew's rather unusual, cooperative behavior. I had been wanting to do a page about the many faces of Drew for awhile and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity for the photos. I would shout out "Funny face! Scary face!, (those two can be a little hard to distinguish.), Mad face!" and he would quickly act each one out. Now, if only it would work that fast the next time he started to throw a fit... "Drew, sweet face! Sweet face! SWEET FACE!!
