Other stuff the Squid can do

She can get on her hands and knees and hike her little tushie in the air. She hasn’t figured out the whole forward-motion thing yet, but she can rotate in a circle through incremental side-scooching.

She can grab her toes.

She can lie in bed in the mornings and babble while we’re getting ready for the day.

She can sit for a few microseconds before falling over. When she falls, she puts out a hand to catch herself.

She can grab things so well that she’s beginning to do so rather insouciantly. “Ho-hum, I think I’ll just grab my amoeba toy while glancing in a completely different direction, and then maybe later I will find the cure for cancer.”

She can express so much interest in the ExerSaucer in the nursery at our friends’ parents’ church that Grandma goes out and buys one for her.

She can bat.

Ah, yes, she has effectively wrapped Grandma around her finger. Definitely the most useful skill ever. :D

Oh yes. Grandma's days were numbered; it was only a matter of time.

I've heard that squid have attacked sailing vessels. Probably a good thing. Beats sailing off the edge of the world.

Oh, wait, capital S, not in German, must be a proper noun....
