Maybe I Should Have Called Her The Hisser

The Squeaker’s newest sound is the Sssss; much like Sammy the sidewinder snake, who says the super syllable “S” with a supercilious sneer (some people say Sammy can be something of a snob).

Except she hasn’t yet learned that the tongue must be place at the top of the roof of the mouth to produce the perfect, soft “S” sound. Instead her tongue pushes to the very front of her mouth, right up to her gums and comes out with a “ttthhhhhhhh,” like Thammy the thnake ath a lithp.

It’th thuper cute.

She pushes herself around the living room (great room, for those of you in the Midwest), occasionally raising her upper body on her arms in baby version of the yoga downward dog, looking around to make sure the toy/cord/item she was working towards is still there.

And of course, she’s ttttthhhh’ing all the way through a gummy, open mouth grin.

It's only a great room if they give you an extra 10 feet and no family room separate from the formal living room.
The great room is the great midwestern housing joke.

But......she's such a doll. What a honey!

She's growing fast!

Our newest little one is "L.A. Baby" but I may have to change it to "Grunt." She's one heckuva grunter. She doesn't even cry that much... she just grunts.

Hope all is well. Happy Turkey Day!
