It takes months for babies to learn how to roll over, then learning how to crawl, then learning how to stand up on their own, and suddenly they are walking all by themselves. But once they’ve mastered each new step they become more and more mischievous. Suddenly all those long months of learning the small steps seem to have gone by so fast just like they are moving now. Moving fast and ready for playtime all the time, even the moments when we are just trying to get a quick rest.Source: Photo by Gustavo Fring from Pexels
One mother grabbed her video camera just in time to capture this 8-month-old baby trying to “sneak up” on his 91-year-old great grandfather who is trying to take a nap in the middle of the living room floor.Source: Video by one2ninetytwo on Youtube
But the sneaking part doesn’t last long when this 8-month-old gently grabs on to his great grandfather’s shoe. He looks up to see if this gets any reaction from his sleepy friend. Maybe since he is laying on the floor he will want to play.Source: Video by one2ninetytwo on Youtube
As his great grandfather starts talking to him the baby starts smiling seeing that his friend is awake and ready to play with him. Finally!Source: Video by one2ninetytwo on Youtube
The baby continues to play with his great grandfather’s legs seeing if he will actually get up to play. But he stays in his nap time position talking to his great-grandson lifting up his head from time to time to see where the little one is at.Source: Video by one2ninetytwo on Youtube
His great-grandson crawls closer attempting to get a better look at his great grandfather. The little one continues to move around so swiftly when nearly bumps his head on the coffee table behind. Just as he goes to lean back his great grandfather sticks his hand behind his little grandsons head protecting it from any bumps or bruises.Source: Video by one2ninetytwo on Youtube
But this little one simply cannot get over playing and giggling with his great grandfather on the floor. Just look at how fondly they are looking back at one another.Source: Video by one2ninetytwo on Youtube
The 8-month-old then takes just a quick moment to check in with his mom just to see where she’s at.Source: Video by one2ninetytwo on Youtube
As his great grandfather finally rests his head back down on the pillow thinking playtime is over the baby taps on his shoulder to let him know he’s still there and still wants to play.Source: Video by one2ninetytwo on Youtube
Both still giggling with each other his great grandfather fondly touches his head acknowledging that he is awake and willing to keep playing. Giving him the sweetest praises.Source: Video by one2ninetytwo on Youtube

Especially, when we grab the camera at the perfect moment to capture those moments that we’ll be able to look back on for years to come.
