phone conversation

Saw this cartoon on the babycenter.com newsletter and felt that I can totally relate to it. In fact, all I am asking is to at least be able to carry a conversation... Here's what Lynn would do -

1. scream (happy scream)
2. cry (upset)
3. try to grab the phone
4. try to get me to pick her up
5. say hi or ah ah ah when grandma calls her name

What I'd do --
1. put on speaker phone and give her the phone (so grandma or auntie can talk to her, too)
2. hand her a dead cell phone (but she'll still try to grab "the real one")
3. hand her a recent favorite toy
4. nurse (best way to shut her up and have a decent conversation)
