I was trying to get Milo to play by himself for a little while in his crib yesterday and he has this stuffed penguin (go figure) that I kept "pecking" him with which made him laugh! It worked and he got interested in the penguin and played happily for a little while. It didn't take him long to discover that it had a beak that was begging to be gummed and now he loves the thing and is always gumming it's little beaky or it flippers. I think the penguin is going to be beakless by the time he gives it up. The poor thing won't stand a chance after he gets teeth. I had hoped that he would take up with the giraffe that's in his crib but he took up with the penguin instead, Chris is thrilled!
Here are a few pics of Milo and his new friend Tux the Penguin.
"hmmm..., tasty beaky"
"come here my little friend, let me bite you"
"give me the paci or the penguin gets it!"
"num, num, num, num..."
