Madeline hit two memorable baby milestones this evening:
First, while playing with the television remote control (always, always Baby's favorite toy) she whacked herself in the mouth. That wasn't the momentous part. The interesting thing was that she just sat there, stunned or maybe thinking about what happened-- but she definitely was not hurt. Then, I made a fuss, and then Maddy started crying. It was a full-on, lip-out feel-sorry-for-me wail. Madeline has mastered the call for sympathy.
Also, Madeline was sitting on the floor when I walked by her, and she raised her arms for me to pick her up. I love that one.
