Oh, Yeah!

Looks like the Sox are wrapping things up, and if it's any indication, Margot was confident from the first inning:

OK, so actually that picture is from Saturday night, but she looked about the same after the top of the first tonight.

To prove that we haven't kept her in the Sox onesie for the duration of the series: 

And, to show that we haven't kept her drugged and sleeping:

That last one also shows a big passtime of late: trying to get her hands to and into her mouth.  I haven't posted recently about development etc - this has been going on and gathering momentum for a couple of weeks.  She's now pretty good at getting one hand or the other up near her mouth, although she hasn't figured out that unballing the fist would make it easier to keep a finger or thumb in there.  She does occasionally loosen a finger up enough to poke herself in the nostril or eye, though that doesn't seem to bother her much.  As it is she's pretty happy (though also pretty noisy) sucking and slobbering on her index-finger knuckle.  Now all the has to learn, really, is to do it on-demand, and she'll have a real tool for self-pacification.

Hmmm, I think it's been a long enough drought here, that I'll give you one more.  Or two. OK, three more. Here she is still asleep this morning. . .

Squirrel Poem 1

'Tis Autumn, and the squirrels abound
Not just "about", but all around
What Paradise has Jolly found!

The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers

Bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!

Up until this week, Margot has hated her bouncy chair. Now that she can see all the way to the toys and focus on them (two developmental feats that we're very proud of!), she's content to sit in the chair. I wouldn't say that she loves it, but it provides something interesting to stare at apart from the perennial favorites: light bulbs and windows.

Here she is being very focused. Obvious next steps are:

a) reaching out and playing with the toy
b) moving the toy with the power of her mind

While B would be cool, it might be too spooky to have a telekinetic child. Only time will tell.
