Relatedly (not that this is an excuse but more so a declaration of my lack of self-control), I have been majorly stuffing my face this week. Tortilla chips, cookies, Halloween candy, you name it. So maybe for Halloween, I will be a diabetic. That should impress all of the neighborhood trick-or-treaters, right?
All I really have to share with you is an introduction to a major source of entertainment in our house as of late: Bitty Baby. Bitty Baby is the baby version of an American Girl doll and my mom got Clara one for Christmas last year. (Um, how did I not know that they sell Bitty Twins?!) (And, um, how annoying is the word "bitty?")
The twins had generally not taken notice of the doll for the past 18 months (although you can see Brian using it here to lure Colby to crawl for the first time), but recently discovered her in the toy box. Clara is sweet with her, occasionally giving her a kiss and giving her a pacifier, but loses interest in her quickly.
And as for Colby's initial reaction? Well let's take a look:
I know, we are awesome and compassionate parents, right? This type of interaction went on for a day or two, and then gradually he started treating it as a game where he'd want us to chase him with the baby and he'd laugh and give her a hug. And then before we knew it, a friendship had blossomed...
Any unexpected toys become favorites at your house?
