So nice having two days at home with Nutmeg this week after last week's frantic day care tour. Trying to get her to drink cow's milk with little to no success. Various sundry cute things she has done lately:

-- Sit outside the bathroom door while Epu showers.
-- Pick up a remote control, but it to her ear like a phone, and say "Dad? Dad?"
-- When her Leapstart Learning Table says "Hello," respond "Hi."

Not so cute:

-- Pinch mommy, on the boob if possible, and delightedly say, "Ow. Ow!"
-- When Eliot comes over to play, grab whatever toy he's trying to play with and hold it away from him.

Fortunately, now that Eliot is crawling, he's striking back. His favorite move, as of yesterday: Grab her sweater hood and pull as she's trying to crawl away. If he succeeds in getting close enough, bite her on the shoulder.

"Ow. Ow!" She didn't like that very much. But this is the girl who used to crawl up to an immobile Eliot and just grab his face, and also the girl who liked to pick up a big plastic toy and bash him in the face with it. So, on behalf of Eliot, I have to tell her: Turnabout is fair play, missy.
