Perry's Friends

Wednesday, August 24, 2011 by Amy

There is much love when it comes to the following friends, from both Perry and me.

Perry's makeout sessions with Sophie the Giraffe have been CRAY-ZAY. But seriously.

I had a little stuffed raccoon as a kid that I loved, so I admit some pushing of this one. But it didn't take much. Perry loves falling asleep in his carseat with his little lovey tucked under his chin. He also loves napping with it but he keeps pulling it all the way over his face so we're not quite there yet.

Garishly bright? Check. Lots of plastic? Check. Fits comfortably in your mouth from any number of configurations? Check.

I love watching Perry discover how to play with his play gym. I could just watch him for hours. He realizes that he can create noise and movement and his face lights up. It's the best.

I put a bunch of these b&w illustrations all around his changing table and this is Perry's dude. He smiles at this owl bigger than he smiles at me (but still not nearly as big as he smiles at Jon). Not sure what to think about the fact that he chose the creepiest one of the whole bunch to be obsessed with. That owl looks pretty strung out to me.

I think this puppet is a rabbit? Perry doesn't see species.

Perry starts to giggle every time I say the words "Freight Train!" He has loved this book from day one. I've even done tests with holding up other books and this is clearly his favorite. This book is awesome but I'm a little worried this could lead to an interest in Thomas the Train.

I hate Thomas.

This is a new addition to the fold but it's already one of Perry's favorites. Magda is slowly going insane thinking that we have somehow found a replacement for her. Poor Magda.

Really thankful you did this post, because not only is Perry ridiculously adorable, but we were going to get him Freight Train for Christmas. Back to the drawing board. Connor and Lily both love that book.

PS There is no Thomas in this house. You are safe with that book. I can guarantee it up to age 2.5, but that is where my experience ends at this moment.

The black and white pictures around the changing table is such a genius idea. Love that.

Just today, I remembered, "Perry doesn't see species."

And I had to hop over here to thank you for making me smile.

That owl needs to go to rehab. Stat.
