In a nutshell

At the breakfast table, Moose is trying valiantly to retrieve a wayward blackberry from the pocket of her bib.  After she begins to squawk in frustration I reach over and pull it out, putting it down on the tray in front of her.

She blinks blue eyes at me for a minute before deliberately reaching out for the blackberry. Without missing a beat she drops it back into her bib, waits a moment, fishes it out and eats it.

Toddlerhood is going to be interesting.
