welcome sophie.


you know sophie? the giraffe? from what i'd seen of her celebrity appearances, i was skeptical. oh brother, leave it to hollywood to love an old school-looking, rubber giraffe. what kid wants to play with that? well...i eat my words.

ben got sophie from from his auntie rachel and once soph was out of the box, i realized that she's not solid rubber - she's very bendable. she's kind of soft. she's the perfect size for ben's little hands to hold. she squeaks and is so easily squeaks that sometimes ben can even make squeak which always gets a laugh. plus, turns out she's for teething babies...which ben is. and the reason she looks "old-school" is because she's 40 years old and was born in france. c'est fantastique!

I am such a good aunt, it's true ;)

I love the action shot of Ben with his Sophie. I didn't realize how much of a celebrity toy this was until you told me, I had just seen lots of regular kids with it. I'm so glad Ben is getting lots of use out of her!
