Sorry to all of the non-family readers, but this is to be another Nikki Dee post. She was very cute yesterday. Since she had her little rituals which only Gramma seems to comprehend, I don't put the kid to sleep much. However, she came to me blanket in hand while I was sitting on the couch yesterday. So, I took her to the bedroom, rocked her a bit, and put her to sleep. Yay Grampa!
I took this picture when she woke up and played with her little busy box for a few minutes.
At lunch time, I decided that I needed to take this video. The kid goes into a whiny-sounding song when she eats. I mean, it sounds whiny, but it's really just sort of a self-satisfied drone that she produces. She does it all of the time, but I suspect that it will stop without notice one of these fine days, so I decided to try to capture it while I could. She cracks me up — not just me but everyone.
We had some outdoor time after lunch, but she eschewed her new play structure in favour of a nearby patch of hard dirt and gravel. But then Skyler came along and captured her attention. Skyler likes to come over for cookies whenever she can. Having been treated poorly in her early days, the poor little pooch tends to keep her distance from me, but the cookies are helping us to make progress in earning her trust.
Finally, it was time for a little saunter in the park where Grampa's job was to guard her from walking into the river and disappearing downstream.
