Novelty is a Wonderful Thing (I Know It Erodes Away)

The screaming started today. High pitched and keening, sometimes long, other times lasting a brief moment. It left my wife and I looking at each other, our shared bewilderment mixed with a strange sort of pride. This wasn’t angry screaming or “I’ve hurt myself” screaming. It was the sound of an eleven-month old discovering her outside voice. Unlike the noisy toys that have already ‘disappeared’, this noisemaker is beyond our reach.
