finger sucking good

we're on the final countdown till AG can start on solids, to give her a taste of things to come we've started dipping our our (clean) fingers in liquids she can have, letting her taste and seeing what she thinks.

so far she has tried apple, mango, pineapple and plum, quite the little gourmet!

latest trick

I do not like AG's latest trick, she has perfected a 10,000 hertz  piercing scream.

It goes right though brick, concrete and puts your glassware at risk of exploding, still I guess we no chance of losing her with a scream like that!

Bathtime is my job and I love it, I get to tell AG all about my day and watch her happily splashing away with her powerfull kicks.

What's especially nice is sharing the bath with her, however  I found another disadvantage to being a man the other day when she planted one of her kicks powerfully and accurately right between my legs.

Still, at least for the first time since puberty I was able to sing soprano!

Language begins

It's lovely to see AG changing, she's starting to have her own language now, admit-idly its only two phrases "pick me up" indicated by her throwing her hands up in the style of the popular dance YMCA and "I'm frustrated" indicated by a weird grunting noise similar to that you would expect from a small mammal that had trapped its head in a bucket.

Naturally I am very impressed by this and am convinced she is the greatest linguist ever known (though I may be biased)
