Toren used to have a very strong Moro reflex. As that has disappeared, we've discovered that he can be scared. We initially discovered this by accident, but when we saw it, we decided we had to film it because his scared cry is so cute. So, I was mean and scared him so we could film it.

Notes for those wanting to comment:
1) We found out Toren could be scared accidentally by moving a toy into his field of vision too quickly. The resulting sad face and cry were too cute not to record. So we scared him ONE TIME to film it. That is what you are watching.

2) I (the dad) AM WEARING SHORTS in the video. We live in Florida, it was June, I play soccer, and it was hot. If you aren't familiar with soccer shorts, they are short.

3) We didn't post this in an effort to get hits on youtube.com. If you take two seconds to look, you'll see I've posted hundreds of videos on youtube. I post them to share with our son's grandparents who live about 2,000 miles away from us. For some reason this video just took off.

Judging by the dislikes its clear the angry commentates were a bunch of hipster Liberal douches.

Awww! Hes so cute!!! But, seriously guys, the comments of "hes going to wind up with mental disorders" or "youre abusing your child". He just startled the boy, babies startle themselves all the time, dont make it a point to make your kid soil themselves but the surprises of even toys can incite a reaction. Remember, these human beings are now in a new surrounding with all sorts of sights, sounds, tastes and feelings. If your memory of everything was erased and your phone went off in your pocket, I bet you fifty bucks youd shit in your shoes. The comments list just reminds me of hipster Liberal douches telling other people how to raise their children. I dont have any yet, but its not that big of a deal.

Lol.. "This is dangerous for the baby or any child" whoever thinks what he did is wrong, especially to that degree, is a fag. and not the gay type of fag.. the type that should die either shut the fuck up for the rest of their lives, or just Die out!
Jesus Fucking Christ, you people need to stop your fucking over reacting comment because the dad did not mean it in a mean way but in a teasing and loving way. I'm pretty sure a lot of you isn't parents so you don't know how it feels to have a kid and sometimes you just want to tease your babies a little bit. Calm your tits people.
