Foosball Wizard

Foosball Goal!

I am unable to watch today's video without laughing. It might be the cutest one yet, although there is definitely some stiff competition. Nora had been "playing" (no ball) foosball for about 15 or 20 minutes before we shot this video, and much of it was just as fun as the 53 seconds you're about to see. When it was time to go back to the table for the grownups to have their after-meal coffee, Nora was not pleased. One brief anecdote from this morning before we get to the feature presentation...

This morning she got "that look" on her face and grunted a few times. I already knew what was happening, but she was polite enough to inform me. She pointed to her rear end and said, "Sinky!!" I don't recall the exact etymological processes, our household word for diaper defecation is "stinky", used as a noun. For example, "Nora, do you have a stinky?" or "Uh oh! I think we have a stinky!" We're hoping that learning to give a post-stinky warning is a step on the path to giving pre-stinky warnings.
