Although some days go slowly, life goes quickly. Since Nikki Dee begins her nineteenth month of existence (in present form) today, I thought a few recent poses were in order. I know two days ago (Foto Friday) is pretty recent, but bear with Grampa anyway, will ya?
The phone rang the other day, and shortly thereafter, she picked up whatever was handy, placed it by her ear and commenced to jabber. In addition to jabbering into pretend phones, a favourite pastime in to look at herself in the mirror. In these two pics she does both.
She quite enjoys going to the store — any store will do — where she can enjoy all of the sights and sounds and jabber some more. At the door the other day, she became quite interested in the pumpkins and tried to lift several. Soon, she found a little one that she could manage, and for some reason, it ended up going home with her.
She gets lots of walkies, especially to the park. It's almost at the end of the street (or several streets) , and this is the view as we approach.
And then she got to play in the leaves.
Following is an absolutely stunning video of her (just kidding) walking through the leaves. In the clip, I mention that she veers to the water on occasion but was being pretty good about accepting my redirection. Well, that stopped shortly after this clip when her desire to get to the water became quite strong indeed. She became quite vocal and unhappy with my insistence that we go the other, and I became a grouchy old man for a few minutes. That does happen periodically, you know?
But we're both over it now, so Happy Birthday little Nikki Dee.
