My baby, the thief

The other day Carina was being extra snuggly. She burrowed into my shoulder and hugged me over and over and over again. I was overcome with emotion because it was just so adorable. These days she would much rather be on the move than cuddle with me.

Then she pulled away and I saw a glint of something shiny in her mouth. Alarmed, I reached into her mouth as she squirmed and whined. I dug around, felt something, and pulled it out. My earring.

All of her snuggles? A guise, under which she stole my jewelry; with the intent of ingesting it. ::sigh:: I still have no idea how she actually managed to take it out. Did she use her mouth? Is she crafty with her hands? Thinking about it cracks me up and scares me at the same time.

I would have been a candidate for Mother of the Year had I let her keep my earring in her mouth for the purpose of capturing it on camera, so you'll just have to imagine that it looked just like this photo below, except complete with sterling silver hanging out of her mouth.

So now I guess I will have to suspect an ulterior motive when she gets snuggly in the future!

Any other baby thieves or pickpockets out there?
