Despite their terrible instincts, primitive coordination, and utter dependence on adults to live, they can still amaze with their sheer babyness. The concept of this was so foreign to me that I wouldn’t have believed it unless I saw it for myself. The pediatrician blew my mind with this one.
I think the doctor explained that there is leftover estrogen in the baby’s body from the gestation period or something like that. Anyway, you can milk a baby. Add that to the list.
You may have already seen Sharky dance to Cut Copy, but did you know that infants are remarkably agile and full of crowd-pleasing party tricks?
I don’t know if you’ve seen this before, but Sharky started doing this at 3 weeks old. He stands up erect when I grab his feet so I started balancing him like a broom. It really works his core and it helps to build confidence and a trust-bond with his dad. After a quick search on youtube, I found out that I’m not the only dad doing this, but my kid is the youngest I’ve seen balance for any substantial amount of time. I wonder what stunt Sharky will pull next?
