Why babies cry

I've been told an untold number of times that babies cry because it is how they communicate. Maybe they are hungry. Maybe tired. Maybe there's some action in the diaper? But now that Radar is approaching toddlerhood, I think he's branching out in his reasons for crying... What do you think?

Oh, and don't forget to leave a comment with your guess as to when Radar will take his first unassisted step. I'll be listing the guesses on the sidebar and the winner will be announced when... well, when Radar takes that first step!

Lots of love,
Titi and Radar

PS - At least Radar's cries are sincere and he hasn't reached this yet (for those of you who haven't seen this before):

This baby is crying because his mother is torturing him! She is an Indiangiver (no offence meant to either native americans or south asians) My vote is for 11 months.

So mom's voting mid November Radar is already crawling right? I'm thinking mid October unassisted... I'll say Oct 16ish in honor of Carlo's 40th. And give Radar the watch, it's torture for ALL of us!

I'm glad other family members are chiming in. I had been mulling notifying protective services.

re:Science Pundit's link-now let me get it straight. Was he born in Kenya or Australia?

You tell me. Since you claim to have been present at the birth, that makes you part of the cover-up. Did you also plant a phony birth notice in the newspaper?

Hey mom... poke fun all you want, but I think this raises legitimate questions! After all, I did not see what was happening behind the curtain in the delivery operating room and then they wouldn't let me see my baby for nearly an hour... plenty of time to whisk in an intruder from Kenya! The only up side is that I can attest to the fact that Radar is NOT a socialist. He doesn't like to share anything!!!
