v. squealed, squeal·ing, squealsv.intr. 1. To give forth a loud shrill cry or sound.
Stella has a new trick and thinks its pretty fun, although I dont concur. She squeals a hair raising, flower wilting, ear covering, dog barking squeal. Every 2 minutes at least. I know it is just her exploring her vocals and learning how to get a reaction, but when the neighbours start to peer out worried behind their curtains and my ears start to ring, it gets a little frustrating. Correction; a lot frustrating. I am at a loss as to how to stop it. I've tried the frown and the 'No', but that just gives her the reaction she's looking for. I've tried ignoring it, but really, it sounds as though someone is being murdered over here!
Any suggestions and tips would be much appreciated. Between now and then, im sporting ear muffs.
