She's like the cutest, highest-maintenance, Roomba, ever!
What's the point of having a baby if you can't dress them up stoopidly and also trick them for laughs?
This is a humongous bag of Swedish Fish, which I have sealed tightly. Vivi will frantically paw and claw at the bag, or any wrapping, generally. It's one of her favorite things to do. I then pretended that I can get (invisible) fish out of the bag, and eat them.
This video is short, but I can assure you it went on for quite some time...
Next, I palm blueberries, and pretend I can get those out of the bag. Vivi ate an entire small bowl of blueberries this way.
Like I said, it's super-fun to play Baffle-A-Baby!!
My wife likes it when I bring home some hardware, but Vivi loves it!! We will try to post video of her stomping around, making the medals clink. We are teaching her that medals go "clink clink clink!" :D
I enjoy badminton, but Vivi is The World Champion of Cuteness, hands down!! :)
Vivi will walk up to us and say, "Racket! Racket!" This means she wants to play. When she gets a racket, we taught her to say "swish swish swish," as she waves it in the air. Almost immediately, she will say "shuttle, please!" Then she will smoosh the shuttle feathers into the strings.
She'll be bringing home non-cuteness-related hardware soon, at this rate:
