Julia the Faker

Julia is quite the ham. She has set aside the meek, soft-spoken baby of old and assumed the role of vocal, assertive, and precocious toddler (she is taking steps now).

Here she is, just up from her nap and pretending to be upset. Mommy was so sold on Julia's performance that she ran to get the camera. Sorry, Julia, but you have some practicing to do.

Julia knows that she is still a rookie at the whole fake-crying thing. To her credit, she only kept up the fake-crying for a few minutes. She finally dropped the act and chuckled, if a bit ruefully.

Max, too, has been working on his sympathy-gleaning techniques. I am growing less and less impressed, but it has worked beautifully on the canadian relatives!

Ah, how they grow up. So predictably.
