At my baby shower in SC, my dad had a special gift for Liam-- Meet "Mozart":
I am in love with this little guy! (Well, he's actually kind of big-- he's 22" tall!) Mozart is a 100% cotton hand knitted blabla doll-- he's soft, cuddly, bright and fun. I love that he's a Sock Monkey with a modern twist.
Mozart has been our test monkey for all of Liam's new gear-- here he is trying out the rocker, the swing and the bumbo:
When I started thinking about items to put on the shelves in the nursery, I decided that Mozart needed some friends. Meet Lemonade, who is about 10" tall:
A monkey in a turtleneck! An elephant in shorts! Ahh!! To see Liam's little fingers wrapped around these, smiling when he hears them rattle... now that will be a sweet day. I can't wait for him to meet his new friends.
