Two-armed and not dangerous

The crime rate is on the rise around our house. The suspect is a female, nearly 9 months old and about 27 inches tall. Her assigned pacifier color is pink. Recently she has been spotted pilfering other babies' pacifiers in various locations around the playard. On occasion, the pacifier has reportedly been snatched directly from the owner's mouth.

The brazen thefts occur in broad daylight, and the greedy perpetrator is not always content with taking just one pacifier at a time:

The suspect makes her getaway by crawling. She should be easy to spot since she prefers to place pacifiers in her mouth upside-down:

In fact, she also has been known to experiment with using pacifiers backwards:

If you come across this suspect, do not attempt to remove the pacifier from her mouth. Her parents are just happy that she's learned how to soothe herself without their help!

There's no stopping her now! She's learned how to a) get Mom's attention w/ the camera, b) make her siblings respect her obvious ability to have fun at their expense, c)find gratification in temporary measures (this might have to be revisited in her teen years, and d)keep all of us blog voyeurs laughing and wondering what comes next!! Bravo, Dahlia!

Heehee! Go Dahlia!

We gave up long ago and made all pacifiers communal. A little socialism won't hurt, right?
