normally, i don't let jane play with my iphone. one, it costs a lot and i want to keep it nice. two, i don't want her to be one of "those" babies that is obsessed with phones. well, she is. anyway, i was showing her a picture of herself on the phone and she was being very well behaved so i flipped through and showed her the album. she caught on quickly and took the phone to touch the screen and flip through on her own (it was very cute.) next thing she does is hold the phone right next to her ear! it was so cute and funny. i didn't go get the other camera (not sure why) so i don't have proof. but i let her hold onto the phone and she did it again about 30 seconds later. she seemed to be listening for someone to talk to her. who taught her this? probably me. but i am impressed that she learns things just by watching. it makes a momma proud.
so, the time came for us to move on and put the phone away... bad idea. she threw the biggest fit of her life so far. it was screaming, and i mean screaming. she threw herself on the floor. and the crying went on for about 2 minutes! i tried distraction, talking to her, even her baby doll didn't comfort her. finally i took her outside and she calmed down. i am telling you, sin nature is strong in this child. one surprise for me, being a new parent, is that discipline starts sooner than i thought.
moral of the story, jane is not ready for phone responsibilities. she goes all crazy like gollum on lord of the rings, not cute!
