Peek-A-Boo

Sarah has started playing Peek-a-Boo with us. She does it when we go upstairs to get her out of her crib in the morning. She does it when we're changing her diaper.

She did it last night when I placed the blanket on her while she was hanging out in her bouncy seat. She thinks it's hilarious. She pulls the blanket up over her face and then quickly pulls it back down and, even if you don't gleefully say "PEEK-A-BOO!" for her, she laughs and laughs and laughs. Piaget would say it's because she's developing object permanence, but I say it's because she's a Provost/Drueke and as a clan we know funny. And come on, that's some funny stuff right there.


Also, just like her older cousin, Rosellen, Sarah turns out to have the nose-biting gene. Now that Ro is a dignified 10 year old she doesn't bite people's noses anymore. But I bet she still harbors a secret longing. I certainly wouldn't get in a barroom brawl with her, not without nose protection. Sarah's no different - she'll take your honker right off your face if you're not careful. See? She's got her daddy's nose.

A nose biter? She must be related to our old dog Motor. They're both have a very familiar cuteness.

Probably. Sarah likes to sit up on the kitchen counter (where she is in these pictures) and Motor has a fondness for the counters, too...

I think, now that Kate has been maimed, Sarah is making her move to pass her in the cuteness derby.

Rosellen is 10? Good grief. Where did the years go? I think there must be some sort of creature that eats years. I picture something like a big anteater with a big opening at the end of its nose.

She could be serious competition for Mike Tyson in the body-part-eating category.

-Delphi - yes, Rosellen just turned 10 yesterday! We're old! This doesn't bode well for our parents...

-Chris - once she gets teeth, she's going to kick Mike Tyson's ass.

Yes, Rosellen is 10 and no, it doesn't bode well for your parents but neither does Kevin saying that Steve is 44!
