Carver must have different perceptions of Kira and me. We saw the same pattern with Avey, but for some reason it is most apparent when they get around Carver's age. Mom equals comfort, and Dad equals playtime. The man cub has been in an annoying phase where he gets up between 5 and 6 a.m. every morning. Kira and I take turns getting up with him, and we've noticed that when I get up with him, he rolls around gleefully on the couch as if it were a trampoline. When Kira gets up with him, he'll cuddle up in her lap or on her shoulder, and sometimes go to sleep for a few minutes at a time. It can't be how we react to him in the morning, because we are both equally lethargic. I certainly don't encourage him to have a blast at 5:20, so it must be related to his expectations of us.
