A Sweet, Sad Face

I posted this a few weeks ago in a "Wordless Wednesday" but then realized that it might be good to give it some explanation so that you all don't think we are just really mean parents who like to irritate our children! ;o) I removed it. Here it is again.

Notice the sweet smile on Gabriel's face before Josh says the dreadful

The reason we decided to film it is because it was one of the very first times he had ever been told no. The actual first time was for something he was doing...I can't remember what it was...and he just got the saddest, most pathetic look on his face. He was on the verge of tears! I ended up picking him up and console him, but I was probably giggling because it was so a sad way I guess!

So we thought we'd try to get it recorded on Josh's phone. I promise, we did not do this again to him for the sake of the camera. It only happened once. Now when he is told "no" it is because he is actually doing something he is not supposed to do!

And strangely, at only 11-months, he actually stops doing what he's doing.

I know that won't last forever...

My friend was just telling me about this yesterday with her 9 month old baby! She told her boyfriend to tell me how he said "No!" and the baby thought he was scolding her and started crying. Awww.

I don't think it is a bad thing that he has a sensitive heart. What a great thing! He is learning right from wrong and I pray he will desire to do what is right.
