Sean is a screamer.
As a baby, he used to do this high-pitched squealing which we called his baby taradactyl impersonation.
Imagine you’re on the set of Aliens, and the baby aliens are hatching from their eggs with a gurgling, squealing, breathless hiss, “EEEEEEEAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKK!!!!”.
Sean was just like that whenever he wanted to get our attention.
Lately. He’s developed a more… resonating and controlled scream. However it’s still so high-pitched, that it rattles my teeth and gives me an instant headache. And I swear HE KNOWS how irritating it is.
He’ll be tearing at the pages of a book or something. I take the book away. He’ll look at me. Pause. Then. Still looking at me, at the top of his voice, he’ll go off like a smoke detector “EEEAAK EEEAAK EEEAAK EEEAAK EEEAAK!!”.
Instantly the sound is boring holes into my brains, my eyes are watering, I’m down on my knees, covering my ears with my elbows, grappling for the book and I hand it back to him, while standing as far away from him as possible until the sound goes away.
Lets hope this is just a phase he’s going through.
