Pointing, Pillows, & The Wave

You are really something else, Little Miss. Tonight was the first time you've ever manipulated your mommy and daddy. Daddy told you that you couldn't touch the buttons on the t.v. and so you started to cry like he was breaking your heart and then you bee lined it over to mommy for comfort. Daddy said you are a girl, and therefore, already know how to work the system. After you had a good fuss in my arms, I set you down and you walked over to the t.v. (about 6 or 7 feet away) letting your intentions be known the whole time by pointing your finger at the buttons on the television. You may have been pitting mommy and daddy against each other and manipulating that way, but as far as deviousness goes--you've got a thing or two to learn.

You've also started to have a thing for throw pillows. You pick one off the couch or off the bed and walk around the house with it in the evening when you are tired. You hold it in front of you with both hands and then when you get tired, you lay it down on the floor, and then you lay down on it sucking your two fingers and holding one ear (ala your grandpa Allen).

You wave hello and goodbye all the time now as well. Your wave is very circular. In fact it looks like you are doing wrist rotations. It's so cute. I can't wait until we get our new camera because our old one broke and I don't have any new pictures of you to post.

Excuse me, Chris, but I guarantee it's not just girls who know how to work the system. Manipulation skills come at a scary-early age, girl or boy! Little Boogers... (Doesn't it just make you want to stand back and laugh, though? They really are amazing!)
