Stopping short on grandma

Aiden has recently started being really interactive. He makes a lot of noises and responds more to sounds and actions. We call him 'baba' at home which back in Goa, is usually the nickname given to the first boy in the house. He has figured out that there's a connection between 'baba' and himself and responds to the sound. Of course he has no idea that Aiden is name. Call him that and you will get no play. He loves being held up high in the air and flubbers on his tummy. Here he is playing with grandpa.
We were at grandma's over the weekend and there was a lot of love flowing between Aiden and his grandma. Could it be because grandma looked after him while Mommy and Daddy went out on a date to a local restaurant? He was so engrossed in Grandma that he didn't even notice us when we returned and continued telling her stories. This picture reminds me of that episode from 'Seinfeld' where Kramer is caught stopping short on George's Mom :)

In the last couple of days he has also become very physically active. He's started to toss and turn on the play mat, gestures a lot with his hands and even started practicing walking. I have a feeling he's going to be out and about a lot sooner than we can say 'walk'. BTW, if you click on this picture and enlarge it, you will notice that his pants have pockets on the side. I guess they are meant for his visa card and keys to his strollers but they sure aren't big enough to store things that he really needs, like diapers.
