Holy Screaming

Wito is experiencing a shrieking phase. A major shrieking phase.

And not in an unhappy or bothered way, but in a blissful my-life-is-AWESOME kind of way. Time to eat? IIIEEEEEEYYYEEEEEEE! Time for a nap? IIIEEEYYYEEEEEEEEEEE! Time to play? IEEEYYYYYEEEEEEEEEE! Time for Music Together? IEEEYYYYEEEEEEEEE! Time for a walk? IEEEEYYEEEEEEEEEEEE!

You get the picture. At first, it was absolutely darling…the clasping of hands, the huge gummy grin, the excitement. But now, people, my ears hurt. The neighbors’ ears hurt. How can taking a nap be SO thrilling? As I type this, he is lying in his crib, shrieking with undeniable glee to the mobile.

I definitely do not have an emo baby.

I’ve added some shriek for your listening pleasure. It must be your lucky day.

    I kind of like it when babies do that. It makes me laugh every time. I guess it’s a different story if you’re living with one of them, though.

    Wow! I am thanking my lucky stars we haven’t entered the shrieking phase yet. I don’t think our poor dog can handle any extra noise in this house.

    How do you guys like the Music Together program? We are doing a different type of class but am thinking about trying out a session of the Music Together.

    He absolutely LOVES Music Together. I’m not really a “Gymboree”-type person, but this class is wonderful. In fact, I got a little teary-eyed during our first class due to the sheer delight on his face. I highly recommend it!

    This is surely taking blogging one step further, with live baby sounds! Fun. I just hope the next post isn’t baby diapering videos.

    Ours doesn’t shriek at such a high pitch. She’s more a shouter, and she LOVES to do it when we’re in public, like at Target or the grocery store. People think we’re abusing her or something, but that’s just how she expresses HAPPY! It’s getting more and more fun by the day!

    That is one happy baby! Oh, if only there were a video (hint, hint). Yeah, I know I need to get out more. What’s your point?

    Wito on the banner fits the post so well.

    I’m always saying how emo my kid is. So it’s funny that you say yours isn’t.

    (and mine only emo because of his hair and not really his taste in music, as he’s really into Larie Birkner right now.)
