Large and in charge

Well, she's actually not that large, but we definitely know who's in charge of my brother and sister-in-law's place. That would be my 7-month old niece. I'm not quite sure where she get's it from. Her brother is relatively easygoing, but whatever he has, she wants.

As an example:

On Sunday she was sitting on a blanket with a pacifier in her mouth. Her brother was gnawing on one, but he didn't really care that it was pacifier. She hopped on her butt (oh yes, she's figured that out; she can't crawl, but when she's sitting up, she can hop) over to her brother, pulled the pacifier out of his mouth and just held it. He didn't care, reached over and grabbed something else to chew on, and she promptly put his pacifier down and grabbed the new toy he had. He again grabbed something else of the blanket and she once again took it. He really didn't care that she was taking stuff he had. She is most assuredly the boss of him.

But it's all okay right now, because they're babies and I love them so much I just want to eat up their precious little fingers. Ask me how much I love them when they're teenagers and their hormones are raging and I might give you a different answer, but right now, it's all about the love.
