Funnies from the Papoose

The Papoose:
  • now holds cell phones, remote controls, anything with buttons, somewhere behind her head of pressed against her lips, and says, "Hello?" (roughly translated from "Aaa-ooo?")
  • waves bye-bye whenever I put her coat on, whenever we enter a parking lot, whenever we put Chewy in his crate, whenever she goes to bed, and whenever I hang up the phone.
  • says "uh-oh" whenever she drops something, whenever she throws something, when her shoe falls off.
  • says "Da-do" for dog, or Chewy (we're not sure), "da-da" for her father, "mama," "mum-mum" for food.
  • wants to wear my headbands and carry my purse.
  • thinks Bob's name is "gentle."
  • pretends to drink from a coffee cup (maybe we should take a hint from that).
  • tries to brush Chewy with his dog brush.
  • loves brushing her teeth (read: chewing on her toothbrush)
  • says "thank you" ("uh-oo" with a really obvious intonation) whenever she hands you things, and pretty often when you do things for her.
  • brings us books to read her all the time now (especially, Brown Bear, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Yummy Yucky, Baby Says Peekaboo, Raindrop Plop, and Snowman)
  • has said "banana," "zebra," and "giraffe" a few times, but doesn't have them down yet.
  • laughs when she hears people laugh on tv.
  • seems to especially enjoy music by Guns N Roses, Wham!, Buddy Holly, the Beatles (the older stuff), and the Barenaked Ladies. Eclectic taste.
I'll be MIA for at least a week as we celebrate the holidays with fam. I'm sure we'll have lots of cutie pics when we get back. Have a very merry holiday season, peeps!

Well...when you put her to bed, give her a cup of coffee and crank up the Buddy Holly.

Just don't freak out when she suddenly busts out with, "YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE?! YOU IN THE JUNGLE, BABY! YOU GONNA DIEEEEEE...."

I'm also glad to see The Very Hungry Caterpillar making a showing! One of my all-time favorites.
