Can You Hear Me Now?
Has anyone ever noticed that babies go through noise phases? I think they like to hear the sounds, but most of all, I think they like the attention they get from making the sounds. For Monica, it all started with the fake coughing. She would wake up in the morning and instead of crying or cooing for attention, she'd start coughing, a dry hack to be precise. Then, for a while, blowing raspberries was all the rage. Next, it was squinching up the face, pursing the lips and blowing spittily. Now, it's squealing, and it comes in three levels: squealing, high-powered squealing, and only-dogs-can-hear-that-pitch squealing. It's kind of cute, unless the noise is an inch from your ear.
