The growling and the backwards scooching

These are Ngaire's new talents. Put her down on the floor, and you may just look back to see her little head peeking out from under a piece of furniture she's back-scooched beneath. Dangle some toys before her and the soft growling will commence.

Other new skills include her first attempts at kissing, which mainly involve wet mouthing of parental cheeks and noses. She can also sit with very little balancing help, as she did on my lap this morning while I was getting my teeth cleaned.

She also screeches. Sometimes she becomes so shrill that the screech goes silent and dogs start circling our house. All our glasses have shattered.

She has several new nicknames: Ngaire-boo, Ngaire-doodle/noodle/boodle, Boo-Bear (see a pattern here?), The Slime Monster. Squidgle and The Squid remain popular choices, and the Husbandlet sometimes calls her Squawkle, though we are considering reserving that one for our next child.

We will be celebrating Christmas with the Big Family (my folks and his folks) on Boxing Day. I have some pics to post, including one of Ngaire doing her best Roomba imitation, but I may not post again till after New Year's. In the meantime, go visit Peter's "a brief history of the last book i read." Merry Christmas and/or Happy Hanukkah plus Happy New Year to all!
