Logan's new fear

Logan was having a great time at the Hilton extended family Christmas party this year.  He played on a bounce house, tossed around balls, ate tons (and I mean TONS) of chili, and was really enjoying himself.  That is, until he noticed something in the shiny church gym floor...

The funny kid was scared of his reflection!  It was like he suddenly noticed that he could occasionally see something in the floor when he'd move and it freaked him out.  (When I say "reflection" he could mostly just see shadows and something moving in the floor.  It wasn't like looking in the mirror and being scared of himself.)  He wanted to be held pretty much the rest of the time.  Every once in awhile he'd get distracted and forget that he was scared.  He'd start chasing after a ball, but then he'd spot something in the floor and halt.  He'd stand frozen in fear and start crying for me. 
Being the mean mom I am, I laughed, grabbed the camera, and got pictures before comforting him.  Sadly, I kept missing the best moments, so these two videos and my explanation will have to do.

In this next video he was searching for his reflection.  He was so funny!

When we were home the next morning and he was walking on our kitchen floor (wood laminate) he suddenly halted, checked out the floor and decided it was okay before proceeding to walk.  Thank goodness my floors aren't that shiny!

We'll definitely be pulling this story out when Logan's a teenager.  We've got one for Kaylee too:  she used to be scared of table cloths...

You guys are such great parents!! I'm all about taking pictures first, comforting second. Poor Logan, I'm glad your kitchen floors are fine, that would be miserable for you!

Haha! Kaylee being afraid of tableclothes sure made for some interesting parties this past summer. Hope that when I see Logan next he's still afraid of his reflection... sooooo funny!
