Puffer Face

This is another episode of “Previously on Amara”. This one is from February of 2008, she was almost 4 years old! I had to share this memory. Amara really has a difficult time not laughing…

It all started when Grampy asked Amara if she had ever seen him imitate a balloon? I’d never seen him imitate a balloon. We were both curious and so Grampy puffed up his cheeks and made Amara poke them with her fingers. He went spirally around the room making a hissing noise and doing the best imitation of a balloon that I had ever seen. Amara was in hysterics. “Do it again!” “Do it again!” Remember, she was only 4.

Amara trying to pout

It was sometime later that Amara tried to pout and she did it by making what has come to be known as “The Puffer Face”. She looked just like Grampy had looked when he was pretending to be a balloon. So of course I started laughing hysterically! And then Amara started trying very hard not to laugh. It became my challenge. Any time she would get upset and try to pout I would tease her that “I bet you can’t make the Puffer Face without laughing. Don’t laugh — Don’t laugh!” I would taunt. And she couldn’t do it.

She still can’t do it!

      Sandy — the next time we see you guys I will have Grampy teach Mark how to do it and then he can entertain Kendal! It’s cute no matter what age. xoxo

    That is too cute. Love the pictures. How did she enjoy the snow? Tucker is sick with a fever yesterday and today and now Ben is starting to run a little fever. But they are doing fine.

      Tell Tucker to get well quick and to not share it with you! Amara had a blast on her trip to the snow. A lot of the snow had melted but that made for safer driving and they still had enough to build snowmen and go sliding!

    Such a cutie puffer face! My oldest grandson always acts shy in public, even when having the best of times. I know he wants to smile but holds back so I always tell him, “Don’t smile…don’t you DARE smile!” which of course causes him to break out in a grin—just in time for me to snap a photo, most of the time! 😀

    Thank you for linking up to GRAND Social, my friend!
