Naomi screams. She is very happy - while she's happy. But when she's no longer happy - she screams. And when she starts screaming she doesn't stop screaming. If you let her scream for "too long" (an undetermined amount of time) she will not settle down even if you do pick her up. She will then scream hysterically off and on for at least 20-30 minutes.
So a lot of the time you'll see me looking like this - obviously working on something else, but keep the status quo by jiggling her with one hand.
It's not exactly conducive to laundry, dishes, picking up, wiping bottoms, or putting DVDs on. (Ahem...)
But it's how we do things around here. Yes, I do wear her in the Moby around the house, but sometimes that takes "too long" and I get distracted. A lot of the time you'll find me jiggling her just so...
