What an expressive face, and so young! There is a fascinating television show called Tell Me A Lie in which the stars solve crime through detecting "the truth by analyzing a person's face, body, voice and speech. When someone shrugs his shoulder, rotates his hand or raises his lower lip, Lightman (the main character) knows he's lying. By analyzing facial expressions, he can read feelings - from hidden resentment to sexual attraction to jealousy."
I've watched this show a few times and I have become very self conscious, nervous even, about what my own body language might be saying when I'm not quite being truthful… oops, did I say that out loud? Maybe just watch my feet when we're chatting with each other.

So constant, but slight shifts in your feet to accommodate your changing posture won't tell me that you may be artfully speaking? ;)

Yikes. I'll bring a blindfold the next time we talk. I'll also write everything I want to say down and have some else read it to you. That way, I should be relatively safe!

Our eldest had a whole arsenal of variations on this look. We called them his "I'm judging you" looks. Complete with eye-rolling and 'tsk' by 2 months old, and regardless of just how funny we thought we were being, we knew that he was very disapproving, lol. He was an infant curmudgeon. :)

It took him until around 2 yrs to round out his disapproval with some more willing expressions.

Great pic.

I love the look: it has that "don't mess with me" appeal, while still being adorable.
If that's disapproval, It's a great delivery (pun intended).
Humour is a great additive.

This might be delusion from the fever, percacetes, bleeding ears and inability to properly close my jaw that I'm currently experiencing, but...

The creation and evolution discussion is interesting and I feel horribly under learned about it.

Why don't we either find someone to choose some key books around the discussion and start a reading group, or find a professor who is an expert in this area and yet postmodern enough to tolerate both christian and athiest aproaches and we could all take a distance reading/discussion course on it together. I know I'll get the crappiest mark. But, then instead of debate for debate, we could all really be engaging some material and earning some sort of credit that might apply to something or at least decorate a resume.

What do you guys think?
