A Future in Computers?
Yep, she's always going for my laptop, she is. I like to kid myself that it's me that she loves, but her eyes really light up when she catches sight of my laptop - and she goes wild trying to get to it so that she can bang on the keys and watch the result on the screen.
So far this has resulted in her discovering a few features that I never knew about - and considering I don't have a clue as to how to undo them ( apart from unleashing her on it again, which really isn't the smartest thing to do), I have been trying to distract her from this.
Vijay has gone and bought her a keyboard ( as in the large casio thingy) which is roughly four times her size. It definitely amuses her - for around 5 seconds - and then the clickety clack of my fingers deftly moving over my own keyboard cause her to shift her attention right back to my laptop, and she's over here in a flash - before you can say 'Peanut, wait, no, whoa...dammit!'
Ah yes - almost as a direct result of this obsession, Peanut has learned to crawl. I was really in no hurry for this development, and indeed we have to double our vigilance - and I have to get some serious babyproofing done. But yes, a fitting development this is, having taken place just a few days before her 8th month birthday.
Which is today. Happy 8th month, little computer genius! ( Man, I sound like the K now...whatever!)
