Don't stand so close to me!

Baby Plum during a meal of noodles (that he tried to feed himself) and carrots. It looks like he's wearing lipstick!

Don't mess with the Baby Plum! Actually, if you aren't Mommy, Daddy or Little Elvis, you might not want to get too close to him.

He's entered both the separation anxiety and stranger danger phase. It's most acute when he's tired.
We went to a 4th of July family gathering on Sunday afternoon. My aunts and grandmother wanted nothing more than to hold a baby. A baby who usually enjoys being held and cooed over.

But not that evening. Anytime someone sat too close to us -- or looked at him -- he cried.

My parents weren't there, but my dad's identical twin brother was. Baby Plum bawled everytime my uncle looked at him.

Hopefully this phase won't last long. When you're as cute and cuddly as he is, you have to share it.
