Every time we are at the store and pass by Mickey Mouse, he has to show me! (Yes darling, Mickey Mouse is everywhere!) THEN one day while I was finishing a diaper change, he spotted the little netted shelves that hold his stuffed animals. Wouldn't you know it, he spotted his Mickey Mouse in there. This stuffed Mickey Mouse was a Christmas gift from Fr. Anthony when Elijah Anthony was 6 months old. Before now, he would go in spurts of playing with it, but overall he only had little interest in stuffed animals.
NOW, Mickey Mouse is starting to go everywhere (with his blankey of course). Mickey Mouse was dancing with him day before yesterday, then jumping on the bed, then Mickey Mouse watched Little Einsteins with him two evenings ago, yesterday Mickey Mouse came to Target with us, and he has gone to sleep on Elijah's pillow the last two nights!
It's so cute to see Elijah suddenly role playing and using his imagination with a stuffed animal (let alone his cute little Mickey Mouse!) Who knew this little Mickey that he's had for a year and a half would suddenly become such a fun toy!
