The Bouncing Binky

I believe the Girl is going to be a major league pitcher as she throws many things and sometimes quite well. Her favorite thing to throw is her binky, especially when I open her door on my van. I am usually fishing this thing out of all kinds of places. Today at a store she threw it towards the middle of the van, it bounced off the diaper bag went under her seat hitting me in the leg and ending up in the parking lot about five feet behind me. Granted to her this is funny, probably more when I am crawling around under the car or all around trying to find or reach that binky.

She has also received her first taste of timeout. Well it was more of me holding her in my lap explaining to a 16 month old not to do something (I am sure I totally got through to her). The girl likes to climb on furniture, she can get down by herself as well but the issue is standing on furniture. A while ago we got a storage ottoman/table for our living room because we thought it would be better for the baby and bumping it with her head. We didn't realize the real danger would be her climbing on it, standing and smiling at us. Well we tell her to sit down and she usually listens but today was an exception, she stood smiling at me the whole time. I proceeded to get her down and she climbed back up so now came the timeout. I took her down and sat her on my lap and tried to explain that she is not to stand on furniture. She wasn't really happy with this and decided to scream and grab my face giving me a small cut on my cheek. After a minute I set her down and she continued to wail but she eventually calmed down and didn't climb on the ottoman again and I was relieved because I was afarid of the beating I may take the next time.
