Corinne & I were sitting in one of the chairs in the living room last night reading a pop-up book about garden creatures when we got to the page about the spider spinning her web and she asked me to sign the Itsy Bitsy Spider. So, I started to sign the song and about halfway through one of the verses she very gently put her fingers over my mouth and I stopped signing. She smiled at me and a few moments later she removed her fingers and I picked up the verse where I left off. We repeated this little dance several times and she laughed harder and harder each time, it was really cracking her up! Eventually I started making faces when she had her fingers over my mouth and she would imitate the faces I was making - it was pretty cute. Occasionally she would preemptively show me the face she wanted me to make and when I obliged it would send her in to a frenzy of giggles.
One time she actually said, with her fingers over my mouth, "I paused you!" and I nodded that she was right. She has a very firm grasp on technology! For the next several minutes it became the pause game and Corinne thought it was great fun to exert her power. I love creating these little games with her and watching her absorb information and incorporate that information to create a new idea.
