Stupid Human Tricks

Gloria has loads of tricks now!

The old standards:
Waving
Clapping
What's on your head?
Trying to say cat (but getting more consistent and a bit better)
Calling the cat (mimicking the rubbing together of fingers to get the cat to come over)

The developments in the last month or so:
Saying a noise similar to "bye-bye" when waving
Knowing where her eyes, ears, mouth, and nose are
Grabbing her toes when you ask "Where are your piggies?"
Knocking over her animal bowling pins (sometimes by rolling the ball at them)
"Having a conversation" when playing with the phone
Barking when asked "What does a dog say?"

Gloria has developed so much in the last month. She's also starting to do the less cute things that accompany getting older--namely, throwing herself on the ground when she doesn't get her way. It's surprising how much more we say "no" than just a few weeks ago.

Last weekend I took her swimming for a few hours. It was amazing how much she enjoyed it. We're going again tomorrow to enjoy this fantastic weather.

Liz forgot the "Are you a fish?" trick.
