Lately Isabella has been making what Leo and I call "threats".
We believe it is her lack of talking back which has led to this.
If you tell her not to do something or take away something that could potentially be dangerous to her (lets say a power cord to the laptop) she gets mad, my friends.
So mad that she now gives us a threat.
What does she do?
After vocalizing that she is indeed, unhappy, she looks at you with those big eyes of hers.
She may even give you a tiny smile.
You, the unsuspecting victim, smile back at her lovingly.
She then leans down to your arm, finger, leg....basically anything that is in reach.
She'll put her mouth on you. Silly you thinks she is going to give you a kiss.
Oh, no, my friends, there is no kiss to be given.
Instead of a sweet kiss she'll give you the tiniest of bites.
They just aren't so tiny.
It may even hurt.
But what has us laughing (behind closed doors--in no way in front of her!) we crack up.
Laughing because our 10 month old is already threatning us.
She is giving US the ultimatum.
"You better let me play with this cord. Or you MAY get bit".
I can't wait until she's older and can talk.
I'm sure I will have quite the funny stories to tell!
***Note: She only does this to adults or pre-teens. She has never hurt another child. Ever. Please do not be afraid to let your child play with mine.***
