Running for President

I'm starting to suspect that my little guy has some type of hidden agenda. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but it almost certainly has to do with taking over the world or running for president.

As most people know, Brayden is an infectiously happy baby. He makes almost everyone he comes into contact with sport a giant, cheesy grin that you can tell will last quite a while. He flirts with the ladies, he schmoozes with the guys. The bottom line is: he's a charmer.

The ladies can't seem to resist those eyes and smile!
Lately, he's taken his interactions to a whole new level. A month or two ago, he learned to wave 'hello' and 'goodbye'. Now, he spends the majority of his time in public waving to everyone. (Please understand this is not an exaggeration. I'm uncertain how his arm doesn't get tired after an hour of it) Once he garners someone's attention (almost always in the form of a smile and comment about how sweet/cute he is), he starts smiling at them and babbling to them. That only perpetuates the situation. I half-expecting fan letters to arrive in our mailbox each day.

This weekend's trip to Chicago really epitomized this behavior. On the plane. At the White Sox game. In the parking lot. At a store. It just doesn't matter. This kid LOVES interacting with people (in fact, once he got grumpy on the flight home, the only thing that soothed him was letting him babble and smile at the people in the seats behind us).  I really adore how social Brayden is and I just love his happy, cheerful personality. If he starts shaking hands with people and kissing other babies, though, I might start to get a bit worried.
