This is another episode of Previously on Amara and comes from June of 2005. Amara would have been 14 months old.
“Did you yoink me in that picture?”
I don’t know if Amara actually remembers being yoinked or if she just remembers it from hearing us talk about yoinking her! We had been looking at old pictures of her on my computer and I just loved the question. Reminded me that I had mentioned yoinking to Sandy just the other day and I still hadn’t explained it to her.
When Amara was little, she had a pacifier, a Binky. To yoink Amara was to take her Binky away. This was often done as a prelude to taking her picture. We have photos of her with it in her mouth but once she learned to smile, we wanted to capture that smile in every picture! She was very good about being yoinked, as she knew she would get her Binky back quickly if she cooperated and besides, she loved to have her picture taken. So much so that she soon learned to yoink herself if you asked her to!
We love those smiles!Tags: Amara, Jenna, pacifier, yoink
