Aby-a-Day – December 15: Jake and the flake (Hipstamatic Monday)

While I was taking snapshots of Jacoby in his mistletoe hat last week, I picked up a snowflake light that had fallen off the string.

Of course, Jake was instantly intrigued.

He demanded (as only an Aby can) to see what I had in my hand.

“What is this shiny device? I must have it!”

Gimme dat!

Nom nom nom!

It’s really amazing just how strong those Aby grabby hands can be when they really want something.

Usually only really good food (ie, MY food) gets this kind of a reaction!

I’m not sure if it was the interesting shape, or the way it caught the light. Jake was really biting that snowflake!

“Mine! All mine! I licked it, so there!” Yeah, things got a bit frenzied.

He was really into that flake! As it turned out, we’re still missing one snowflake bulb, so the string won’t light up. I’m thinking that may not be a bad thing…could you imagine Jake trying to bite the snowflakes if they were lit?
