Surrounded by Toys

This Shabbat, with all the child-friendly toy options available to her, Raphaela chose instead to figure out how to turn on the television, how to get her hand deep inside the VCR, and how to open the slot for the (non-functional) DVD player.

I think we also have a candidate for her first official word, which she started saying on a regular basis since Friday: when she is playing with something and examining it, she gets an introspective look on her face and says "Uh oh." This seems to represent a thinking word, rather than an automatic response to dropping an object, and she says it with such purpose and conviction, I can't believe that it is random.
