Eamon vs Inertia

As a wise man once posited, a body in motion tends to stay in motion and a body at rest tends to stay at rest. Eamon is the former.

At this point in his life, Eamon is extremely curious. About everything. He generally sates his curiosity by putting the object he desires in his mouth, but flinging things behind him is also an option.

He will ALWAYS stop whatever he is doing to mug for the camera, however.

You see, in Eamon's World, things do not belong where they were, nor are things used as they are intended. The latter property was established early on. He always turned things upside down or used them backwards, starting when he could actually manipulate objects. This has become more pronounced as he has gotten older. For example, we got him this really cool bilingual drum that will play the alphabet when you bang on the top of it. Eamon prefers to bang on the bottom.

When awake, he is in constant motion, and he has gotten the hang of navigating stairs. If he sees an open door, he heads for it. If he sees something shiny, he heads for it. If he sees a leaf on the ground, he heads for it. Get the picture?

He has finally settled in to our new home. This makes his parents very happy. If only the dog adjusted so quickly.

2. Looks more and more like his Daddy in every picture.
